Subject [jira] [Updated] (SOLR-3617) Consider adding start scripts.
Date Wed, 20 Aug 2014 02:55:20 GMT


Timothy Potter updated SOLR-3617:

    Attachment: SOLR-3617.patch

Here's an updated patch. Hoping to backport this to 4x (for inclusion in 4.10) unless anyone
has any major concerns over the approach. This patch includes some minor bug fixes found by
our QA team and some hardening of command-line parsing. Also improved the interactive SolrCloud
example session to prompt the user for a configuration name, either default or schemaless.

> I've always found that starting Solr with java -jar start.jar is a little odd if you
are not a java guy, but I think there are bigger pros than looking less odd in shipping some
start scripts.
> Not only do you get a cleaner start command:
> sh or solr.bat or something
> But you also can do a couple other little nice things:
> * it becomes fairly obvious for a new casual user to see how to start the system without
reading doc.
> * you can make the working dir the location of the script - this lets you call the start
script from another dir and still have all the relative dir setup work.
> * have an out of the box place to save startup params like -Xmx.
> * we could have multiple start scripts - say that logged to the console and
default to sys default for RAM - and also solr-prod which was fully configured for logging,
pegged Xms and Xmx at some larger value (1GB?) etc.
> You would still of course be able to make the java cmd directly - and that is probably
what you would do when it's time to run as a service - but these could be good starter scripts
to get people on the right track and improve the initial user experience.
