Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3619) Rename 'example' dir to 'server'
Date Sat, 14 Jul 2012 09:39:34 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-3619:

bq. I think calling it an example is a real turn off.

+1 - we've been getting dinged vs the competition on the perception that it takes a lot to
get solr up and running.
If your first instruction is to go edit some XML file... you've already lost some people.

bq. The others solrhomes are truly examples and have always been second class citizens as
far as additions and scope.

+1 - multiple solr homes under the server directory is confusing

bq. I'm really pro having the default solr home under server though

Me too - In general I think server should be as stand-alone as possible (i.e. you should be
able to copy it to somewhere else and still have it work) and have all relevant config.  The
"contrib" is a bit of a sore spot there of course...

We should probably have a "bin" directory under server as I imagine scripts may proliferate
beyond start/stop, and we don't want too much clutter in the server root.

I could get behind Jan's idea of separating all the binary stuff from the solr home... but
from a practical perspective I don't know how much work it would take to implement that. 
Anything writable like logs would need to be changed to go under the solr home.  Instead of
a solr.home file, I think the CWD could be checked for a solr.xml file, and optionally if
that didn't exist, use the stock one in ../solrhome or something.  It would also be nice to
create a new solr home via a command (i.e. cd to an empty directory and start solr with a
--new flag that puts everything in place for a new server).  But this all sounds like a good
bit of work...

bq. Today's "collection1" is not very well tuned for PDF/HTML kind of docs

I haven't tried it in a while... can we improve it w/o getting in the way of people who don't
use solr-cell?
