Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3251) dynamically add fields to schema
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 15:27:33 GMT


Robert Muir commented on SOLR-3251:

As the failing tests show, it can have unintended consequences.

I don't think this shows anything, these tests arent closing things.

This won't work at all for update requests that depend on new fields in a schema newer than
that on the request's searcher.

There are other ways to deal with that, for example the update requests can have a getSchema()
thats implemented differently. Or it can be required that reopen/commit happens to make the
new fields visible. 

I think ideally it would actually be core reload: I'm really worried about the possibility
of bugs the way this is heading. I think its dangerous.
