Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2204) Cross-version replication broken by new javabin format
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 16:21:32 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-2204:

I now have a customer facing this very problem, but in another context than replication.

The case is that they use Escenic ECM system ( which
is Java based and from version 5 they also have their own built-in Solr search, on version

The online newspaper publications run in the same JVM and then there is a clash between SolrJ
versions needed for the built-in editorial search and the enduser-facing search. Thus it would
be ideal if we could do a drop-in upgrade to solrj3.x without breaking the internal search
of Escenic (which also uses JavaBin of course).

I'll consider committing this, but first it needs some more work I guess.

a) Would there be a more robust way of detecting version mismatch than parsing text from the
exception? Perhaps a new Solr specific exception with a version variable?
b) HTTP request param "version" is currently 2.2, even for Solr3.4. The patch changes this
to 3.4. Should not the version instead be bumped to 2.3, or should we let it follow solr versions
(which is less confusing in many cases..)?
c) How would the new SolrJ version handle talking to 1.4 server? Is there a way to force a
new SolrJ to start talking v1 instead of fallback?

> Slave server is branch_3x, revision 1027974.  Master server is 1.4.1.  Replication fails
because of the new javabin format.
> SEVERE: Master at: http://HOST:8983/solr/live/replication is not available. Index fetch
failed. Exception: Invalid version or the data in not in 'javabin' format
> Switching Solr's internally generated requests to XML, or adding support for both javabin
versions would get rid of this problem.  I do not know how to do either of these things.
