Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3439) Add "content" field to example schema to make SolrCell easier to use out of the box
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 20:54:22 GMT


Jack Krupansky commented on SOLR-3439:

Thinking about the overall intent of example, including raw performance, and the issues of
trying to make it one-size-fits-all, I've semi-convinced convinced myself to semi-withdraw
this proposal. I still think it's a good idea, but it does have drawbacks that make it less
appealing than I first thought. So, unless more voices cry out for it, I'll abandon it.

I might offer up a revised proposal to add a commented out field definition in example to
indicate what is needed to make example fully functional for SolrCell.

> Currently, SolrCell is configured to map Tika "content" (the main body of a document)
to the "text" field which is the indexed-only (not stored) catch-all for default queries.
That searches fine, but doesn't show the document content in the results, sometimes leading
users to think that something is wrong. Sure, the user can easily add the field (and this
is documented), but it would be a better user experience to have such a basic feature work
right out of the box without any config editing and without the need for the user to read
the fine print in the documentation.
> I propose that we add the "content" field to the example schema in the section of fields
already defined to support SolrCell metadata. It would be stored and indexed.
> I further propose that a copyField be added for the "title", "description", (and maybe
a couple of others) and "content" fields to add them to the "text" field for searching. Again,
trying to improve the out of the box user experience. It also simplifies testing - less setup.
