Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2588) Solr doesn't work without Velocity on classpath
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 16:07:47 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-2588:

bq. With some small changes, Velocity could be optional.

Velocity (and the velocitywriter) were optional before, and a conscious and deliberate choice
was made to promote it into a core dependency so that admin code (and users) could start expecting
it to reliable always work.

if we want to re-consider i'm fine with having that discussion, but it shouldn't be an "optional
core" feature ... either it's a core feature and dependency, or it's an optional contrib.

It's not a bug that code in solr has a direct dependency on jars in the lib dir.

> In 1.4. it was fine to run Solr without Velocity on the classpath. However, in 3.2. SolrCore
won't load because of a hard reference to the Velocity response writer in a static initializer.
