Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3232) Admin UI: query form should have a menu to pick a request handler
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2012 16:13:39 GMT


Erik Hatcher commented on SOLR-3232:

bq. Erik, I admit that your /handlers Velocity template presented in SOLR-3161 was remarkably
succinct and readable but it does force the use of Velocity which isn't in core, just as JSPs
aren't for similar reasons.

I'll admit to beating a dead horse here I suppose.  It's a bit frustrating that something
that is so easy and trivial using something already sort-of available isn't really available.
 But the reasons aren't really that similar.... JSPs require a JDK.  VRW only requires another
.jar.  Anyway, I'll let it go, and just roll my eyes at all the hacks and duplication that
building an entirely Ajax UI using pure JSON responses entails.

> The query form in the admin UI could use an improvement regarding how the request handler
is chosen; presently all there is is a text input for 'qt'.  The first choice to make in the
form above the query should really be the request handler since it actually handles the request
before any other parameters do anything.  It'd be great if it was a dynamically driven menu
defaulting to "/select".  Similar to how the DIH page finds DIH request handlers, this page
could find the request handlers with a class of "SearchHandler".  Their names would be added
to a list, and if the name didn't start with a '/' then it would be prefixed with '/select?qt='.
> I did something similar (without the menu) to the old 3x UI in a patch to SOLR-3161 which
will hopefully get committed.
