Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3251) dynamically add field to schema
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 18:25:38 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-3251:

bq. Does this imply that the schema would be writeable?

The in-memory schema object yes.
The question is how to persist changes.  I was thinking it might be easiest to keep a separate
file alongside schema.xml for dynamically added fields for now.  The term "dynamicFields"
has already been taken though and we probably shouldn't overload it.  Maybe extra_fields.json?
 Or maybe even schema.json/schema.yaml that acts as an extension of schema.xml (and could
acquire additional features over time such as the ability to define types too?)

But a separate file that just lists fields will be much quicker (and easier) to update.  Reloading
a full schema.xml (along with type instantiation) would currently be somewhat prohibitive.

add a field to the schema.
