Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8029) Modernize and standardize Solr APIs
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2015 15:48:46 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-8029:

I like my idea better, but /v2 would work.  I think users aren't going to like it, and I think
the only way you can make it really work is to deploy at the root context.  The root context
means it will be up to solr to make sure that /solr, /v1, and /v2 are all functioning correctly,
and I have concerns that we will have a release that's less than stable because of it.

I've voiced my concerns and elaborated at length on my own ideas, so I'm done for now.  Good
luck with implementation, and I look forward to seeing it!

> Solr APIs have organically evolved and they are sometimes inconsistent with each other
or not in sync with the widely followed conventions of HTTP protocol. Trying to make incremental
changes to make them modern is like applying band-aid. So, we have done a complete rethink
of what the APIs should be. The most notable aspects of the API are as follows:
> The new set of APIs will be placed under a new path {{/solr2}}. The legacy APIs will
continue to work under the {{/solr}} path as they used to and they will be eventually deprecated.
> There are 3 types of requests in the new API 
> * {{/solr2/<collection-name>/*}} : Operations on specific collections 
> * {{/solr2/_cluster/*}} : Cluster-wide operations which are not specific to any collections.

> * {{/solr2/_node/*}} : Operations on the node receiving the request. This is the counter
part of the core admin API
> This will be released as part of a major release. Check the link given below for the
full specification.  Your comments are welcome
