Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2586) example work & logs directories needed?
Date Mon, 13 Jun 2011 20:59:51 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on SOLR-2586:

bq. Bottom line I think, is if someone wants to ensure that Solr works well on Tomcat for
example, then they should make a patch so that our tests test with this container too (e.g.
in hudson, etc). Once its baked in hudson for a while, then I would say its easy for us to
recommend it, too.

That is the hardest task. Jetty is so cool, because it can be used and configured "embedded".
To start up Tomcat, you have to provide final configuration files in the default folder layout
and start a main() static method from a class. Something so easy like jettyServer.addServletFilter()
& similar things are not possible with Tomcat out of the box. This makes Jetty (in my
opinion) the best servlet container around. I sometimes also use it that way (embedded in
my Java app).

>            Priority: Minor
> 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.
