Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5103) Plugin Improvements
Date Mon, 05 Aug 2013 20:40:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-5103?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13729905#comment-13729905

Hoss Man commented on SOLR-5103:
--------------------------------

bq. a self--contained archive of a plugin that can be easily installed (even from the UI!)
and configured programmatically.

bq. +1 for this! Keep the configuration w/ the plugin and don't require any central place
to "wire it up".

can someone give me a practical/hypothetical example of what this would look like to someone
setting up a solr instance?

For all the examples i can think of, this doens't really make sens to me -- specifically:
all of the existing plugins you can find in "solr/contrib" ... are we expecting users to JAR
up their own "copy" of DIH with it's config inside of it's jar? are we expecting people who
want to use the langid update processor to re-jar it with some bit of config snippet that
tells it what fields to populate and what langauge to look for? ... and then what? they drop
that jar into some directory, and it still does nothing until they programatically use some
API to say which of their (possibly may) update processor chains they want it to be a part
of, and where in the chain it should execute?

> I think for 5.0, we should make it easier to add plugins by defining a plugin package,
ala a Hadoop Job jar, which is a self--contained archive of a plugin that can be easily installed
(even from the UI!) and configured programmatically.
