Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-773) Incorporate Local Lucene/Solr
Date Thu, 14 May 2009 20:49:46 GMT


Ryan McKinley commented on SOLR-773:

My apologies for being out of the loop....  going back to some Patrick's high level points...
 I agree with Grant (and by extension with most of Patrick's points.  Our main issue now is
how to move forward.  

We have a few options:

1. Get whatever we can working and integrated ASAP and iterate from there.
2. Make some core structural changes to Solr that will make integrating spatial stuff easier/cleaner.
 With this in place, we can then integrate.
3. Hybrid 1&2 -- get a spatial contrib working ASAP with the knowledge that most of it
needs to be replaced/reworked as solr core evolves to better support it.  We would probalby
want to keep the spatial contrib out of the 1.4 release or mark it as "experimental" and subject
to change without notice, etc etc

I am partial to #3 so that we can point to concrete issues and have something to patch against.


bq. The primary goal of SOLR is as a text search engine, not GIS search, there are other and
better ways to do that without reinventing the wheel and shoe horn-ing it into lucene. (e.g.
persistent doc id mappings that can be referenced outside of lucene, so things like postGis
and other tools can be used)

of course, but solr should make this kind of integration easy.  The beauty of open source
is that we need to get a good foundation and the various implementation extensions can be
contributed down the road.

we should evaluate how best to incorporate it into Solr.
