Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-4653) Solr configuration should log inaccessible/ non-existent relative paths <lib dir="...">
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 13:09:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-4653?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13619777#comment-13619777

Dawid Weiss commented on SOLR-4653:
-----------------------------------

Thanks for clarification, Hoss. What you say makes sense but the common practice seems to
be that:
* people modify the example's configuration files and overwrite them just because all the
paths are relative from those directories and pointing at contribs,
* when you want to create an isolate configuration and pass it to somebody to, say, run with
-Dsolr.solr.home it's hard because you need to know absolute installation paths or make the
user install that configuration in an exact folder under solr's unpacked structure. If they
change anything -- boom, things don't work and nobody knows what's going on.

I think the middle ground here is to at least log a warning when a fileset is empty (and provide
the basedir against which it was resolved). This looks suspicious and provides enough information
to recover from the problem.

> Currently the dir path is resolved relative to core's instanceDir but if you don't know
it nothing happens (no warning, no nothing). This is very frustrating.
