Subject [jira] Issue Comment Edited: (SOLR-1449) solrconfig.xml syntax to add classpath elements from outside of instanceDir

------------------------------------------------------------

I have a few questions in mind. 
* Is this an issue which users have reported? in my experience with Solr mailing list, I am
yet to see a request  where users wish to add arbitrary directories to classpath
* How important is this feature to be in 1.4?
* Users in general have a lot of problems with classloading. Even with the current support
with one lib directory I have seen so many users having trouble with classloading . This can
only add to that confusion

 I am not aware of any project which allows this level of configurability for classpath. Most
of the users never have to write custom components for Solr. In our organization, I have encountered
very few cases where they needed to add custom jars to classpath. Even in cases where they
did , they were some trivial jars and it can be put into solr_home/lib anyway.

I am -1 on adding this to 1.4.

> the idea has been discussed numerous times that it would be nice if there was a way to
configure a core to load plugins from specific jars (or "classes" style directories) by path
 w/o needing to copy them to the "./lib" dir in the instanceDir.
> The current workaround is "symlinks" but that doesn't really help the situation of the
Solr Release artifacts, where we wind up making numerous copies of jars to support multiple
example directories (you can't have reliable symlinks in zip files)
