Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-4653) Solr configuration should log inaccessible/ non-existent relative paths <lib dir="...">
Date Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:55:17 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-4653:

The original intent was:

* If users want solr to be very strict and fail loudly if your any of your plugin jars can't
be found, then you should know what plugin jars you car about and use an explicit "path" option
for each of them.
* for the purposes of the example configs, we wanted something less strict so that (combined
with the lazy load option on plugins) the example configs could refer to contrib jars and
the bulk of the example configs would still work even if you didn't build any of those contribs,
or moved/copied the example configs -- if you do either of those things, and then try to use
any of those lazy loaded plugins, the lazy loading feature will give you a loud error.

At this point, i don't have any strong opinions about changing any of this behavior to be
a hard failure if the "dir" doesn't exist, or if the regex doesn't match anything -- the way
the current build system works "ant example" already builds all of the contribs anyway regardless
of wether you care about them, so the key concern is really just what would happen when people
move/copy the example configs.

I suspect that if we change this to cause a hard failure the number of users who might be
confused/anoyed about why they are getting those errors when they move/copy the example configs
(and need to remove those <lib/> directives) will probably be roughly the same as the
number of users who (with the existing configs) are confused by the lazy loading errors they
get trying to use DIH, or solr-cell, or /browse after they move/copy the configs today and
have to go update where the <lib/> directives point at.

it nothing happens (no warning, no nothing). This is very frustrating.
