Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2852) SolrJ doesn't need woodstox jar
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2011 17:29:33 GMT


David Smiley commented on SOLR-2852:

Two other points:
* As a general principle, minimizing client libraries/dependencies is a good thing, especially
one that isn't likely to actually be used!
* Most people will assume all libraries in the /dist/solrj-lib/ directory are required when
this one isn't.
* Woodstox is not the only fast implementation; some quick google searches unearthed [Aalto|]

> The /dist/solrj-lib/ directory contains wstx-asl-3.2.7.jar (Woodstox StAX API).  SolrJ
doesn't actually have any type of dependency on this library. The maven build doesn't have
it as a dependency and the tests pass.  Perhaps Woodstox is faster than the JDK's StAX, I
don't know, but I find that point quite moot since SolrJ can use the efficient binary format.
 Woodstox is not a small library either, weighting in at 524KB, and of course if someone actually
wants to use it, they can.
> I propose woodstox be removed as a SolrJ dependency.  I am *not* proposing it be removed
as a Solr WAR dependency since it is actually required there due to an obscure XSLT issue.
