Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3296) Explore alternatives to Commons CSV
Date Fri, 30 Mar 2012 19:24:30 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-3296:

First steps:

wrt commons-csv alternatives, it's too risky for little/no gain.  I put a lot of effort into
getting commons-csv up to snuff, and almost all of the tests for that reside in commons-csv
itself, not in Solr.  Switching implementations would most likely result in a lot of regressions
that we don't have tests for.

ps: Steve, you're absolutely correct about the reason why there was never a separate noggit
release.  If github had been around in 2006, I might have chosen differently.

unreleased version of commons-csv.  We could remove these solutions if we didn't rely on this
lib.  So I think we should explore alternatives.

used it in many commercial projects.  Bizarrely Commons-CSV's website says that Opencsv uses
a BSD license, but this isn't the case, OpenCSV uses ASL2.
