Subject RE: Help Writing a Distributed Component

I applied you patch to the trunk and tossed it in the debugger.  I'm not
sure how your solrconfig.xml looks, but if your using the out of the box
autosuggest shards don't work.

The reason is that the default search handler has the QueryComponent in
it's list and the autosuggest doesn't.

Try stealing these lines from the end QueryComponent.prepare

    // TODO: temporary... this should go in a different component.
    String shards = params.get(ShardParams.SHARDS);
    if (shards != null) {
      List<String> lst = StrUtils.splitSmart(shards, ",", true);
      rb.shards = lst.toArray(new String[lst.size()]);

Hey Grant,

I have opened a new ticket with the current version of my patch at 
.  What do you mean by configuring my shards?  I implemented the  
distributed methods (prepare, process, modifyRequest, etc) as is done  
in the other distributed components, then I just specify a shards  
parameter in the query.  I looked though the other distributed  
components and did not see them doing any special shard configuration  
other than modifying the query that is sent to the shards.  I must be  
missing something, but I can't seem to figure out due to my lack of  
knowledge on distributed components and the solr codebase in general.   
Thanks for your help!

For my testing, I have 2 instances of Solr running in tomcat called  
solr1 and solr2.  My test query looks like:
