Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-133) change XmlUpdateRequestHandler to use StAX instead of XPP
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 02:33:05 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-133:

haven't reviewed any patches, but to address some of J.J.s earlier points: i assume the goal
would be to move to STaX because it is reportadly as fast as XPP but is also the new standard
for "fast" stream based processing.

As for replacing other XML parsing code in the solr code base -- XML parsing can probably
be divided into two lumps:
 1) processing input streams for updates (or more generally: "requests with ContentStreams"
based on some of Ryan's recent patches) 
 2) config file parsing

while STaX sounds like it makes a lot of sense for #1, sticking with DOM parsing for #2 seems
like a good idea ... using XPath to access arbitrary sections of config information is extremely
handy and the performance issues with initialization from the config DOM doens't seem like
a big issue.

opening an issue to track it as a possible improvement  (orriginally mentioned in SOLR-61,
but that task was more specificly about refactoring the existing code)
