Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2701) Expose IndexWriter.commit(Map<String,String> commitUserData) to solr
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 16:10:53 GMT


Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-2701:

I'd like to move this forward, so I'm soliciting a bit of advice about how to proceed.

I'm interested here in getting this into SolrJ, it's not clear to me that this belongs in,
say, an XML input file (and csv and json and...) since we have a nice clean document add format
and trying to put index meta-data in there seems like a bad thing to do.

Anyway, if we do go down the SolrJ route, it seems like SolrServer needs either two more commit
methods that take a Map<String, String> or something like a new addUserData method,
the latter seems cleaner.

Then we'd have to do something with UpdateRequest to get the use-data passed over to the Solr
server and from there pass it on through to the writer.commit.

Mostly, I'm looking for guidance on whether this is a reasonable approach or if it's wrong-headed
from the start, in which case I'll take any suggestions gladly.. Haven't started to code anything
yet, so changes in the approach are really cheap....

Eks Dev: Do you want to push this forward and/or work on it together?

beforeCommit Listener (analogous to prepareCommit in Lucene).
