Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3259) Solr 4 aesthetics
Date Tue, 20 Mar 2012 14:07:43 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-3259:

+1 to the general idea of lifting the first-time experience of Solr. I like all your proposals

I'm not sure if we gain much by moving the example to a "server" folder. I think it's a Good
Thing™ that we make it clear that what's provided is just an example, not for production.
Another name for the example folder could be "jetty", because that's what it really is - which
many are confused by today, they think that the "lib" and "etc" folders below "example" belong
to Solr...

If anything I'd vote for making the distro closer to what people would want in production.
You could then have a pure "solr/jetty" folder with ONLY jetty, a "solr/example-home" folder
which holds todays "example/solr" making it more obvious what folder is actually the SOLR_HOME,
and finally a start script on top level, start-solr.[cmd|sh], which copies the war from dist
to jetty/webapps, sets -Dsolr.solr.home and starts Jetty. By default would log
to stdout, but a param could have it log to file.
