Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-3439) Add "content" field to example schema to make SolrCell easier to use out of the box
Date Sat, 05 May 2012 20:53:48 GMT
Jack Krupansky created SOLR-3439:

             Summary: Add "content" field to example schema to make SolrCell easier to use
out of the box
                 Key: SOLR-3439
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: contrib - Solr Cell (Tika extraction), Schema and Analysis
            Reporter: Jack Krupansky
            Priority: Minor

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.
