Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-1123) Change the JSONResponseWriter content type
Date Sun, 02 Oct 2011 15:44:34 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-1123:

bq. Is there really such a large use case for users who don't have a JSON plugin installed
but do need to view JSON results in the browser?

JSON has been all the rage for the past number of years - tons of people have been programmed
to say "yuck XML, yay JSON, YAML, etc".
In my experience, very few people have JSON plugins installed, and the out-of-the-box experience
will be horrible for those people (JSON is even used in our beginner tutorial).

The reason for this as I understand is to enable viewing the json response as as text in the
browser. While this is valid argument, I do believe that there should at least be an option
to configure this writer to use the JSON content type. According to [RFC4627|]
the json content type needs to be application/json (and not text/x-json). The reason this
can be very helpful is that today you have plugins for browsers (e.g. [JSONView|])
that can render any page with application/json content type in a user friendly manner (just
like xml is supported).
