Subject Re: Clustering lucene's results
Date Thu, 07 Oct 2004 09:23:14 GMT

Nope, because the example I showed is based on the "local interfaces" 
pipeline and output-xsltrenderer is for remote components only.

Anyway, I don't think it makes much sense -- if you need xslt badly, 
just modify the source code to output the results as XML and put an xslt 
filter on top of what it returns. Shouldn't be too hard.
