Subject Re: anyway to store value as bytes?
Date Tue, 21 Jun 2011 11:38:48 GMT
Does this help?

If not, here's a note from Ryan McKinley on another thread (googling
lucene storing binary data brought it up)...

You can store binary data using a binary field type -- then you need
to send the data base64 encoded.

I would strongly recommend against storing large binary files in solr
-- unless you really don't care about performance -- the file system
is a good option that springs to mind.
