Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2586) example work & logs directories needed?
Date Mon, 13 Jun 2011 20:35:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2586?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13048746#comment-13048746

Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-2586:
------------------------------------

bq. why even have a "work" directory since Jetty will apparently use a temp directory instead.

Some things have reasons that we barely remember ;-)  In this case, I think the main motivating
factor might have been SOLR-118
I remember a number of people reporting failing JSPs over time, and it took quite a while
to track it down.

> Firstly, what prompted this issue was me wanting to use a git solr mirror but finding
that git's lack of empty-directory support made the "example" ant task fail. This task requires
examples/work to be in place so that it can delete its contents. Fixing this was a simple
matter of adding:
> {code:xml}
> <mkdir dir="${example}/work" /><!-- in case not there -->
> {code}
> Right before the delete task.
> But then it occurred to me, why even have a "work" directory since Jetty will apparently
use a temp directory instead. -- try for yourself (stdout snippet):
> bq. 2011-06-11 00:51:26.177:INFO::Extract file:/SmileyDev/Search/lucene-solr/solr/example/webapps/solr.war
to /var/folders/zo/zoQJvqc9E0076p0THiri+k+++TI/-Tmp-/Jetty_0_0_0_0_8983_solr.war__solr__k1kf17/webapp
> On my Mac, this same directory was used for multiple runs, so somehow Jetty or the VM
figures out how to reuse it.
> Since this "example" setup isn't a *real* installation -- it's just for demonstration,
arguably it should not contain what it doesn't need.  Likewise, perhaps the empty example/logs
directory should be deleted. It's not used by default any way.
