Subject Re: Deleting a field at runtime

It depends on which level you want to delete it from. If you just want  
solr to know nothing about the field, then you can remove it from the  
schema and reload the core (or restart solr).
Technically the field will still exist in the lucene index, but if  
you're only accessing that index through solr, it will effectively not  
exist any more. (I think).
