Subject Re: SolrConfig.Initializable
Date Sun, 21 Oct 2007 14:08:31 GMT

I dont see any wrong or bad reason for the change since I believe we never
share an object created by one core (and dependant on it) with another core
- and we probably shouldn't.

At some point, solr-215 was passing the SolrCore to dynamically created
objects instead of the SolrConfig in init. The remnant shows in
The SolrConfig.Initializable was introduced to reduce the change scope of
the patch.

Any reason to (re)introduce SolrCore.Initializable instead of constructors
that can take a SolrCore as a parameter?
