Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2394) Deprecate "standard" writer type (wt), just say "xml".
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2011 03:33:05 GMT


David Smiley commented on SOLR-2394:

I'm glad you are/were totally in favor of this Hoss because, yes, I was simply talking about
putting "xml" as the value in the web UI instead of "standard".  I could have sworn this was
going to get into 3.1 but it did not :-(  Can someone commit this trivial change so it is
not forgotten in the next release?

 In the full interface screen, imagine you're new to Solr and you look at the "output type"
and you see "standard".  What does that mean?  "xml" is pretty clear.
> Assuming it's agreed that "standard" isn't of any value, I suggest that it not necessarily
go away (due to backwards compatibility) but that it's existence is removed from the full
interface screen, replaced with "xml".  Furthermore, a picker list would be a better GUI element
since there are a small limited fixed number of them.
> Perhaps this small UI change can be considered for 3.1.  I'll write a small patch if
there's agreement on the idea.
