Subject Re: [jira] Created: (SOLR-1592) Refactor XMLWriter startTag to allow arbitrary attributes to be written

: Refactor XMLWriter startTag to allow arbitrary attributes to be written
	...
: There are certain cases in which a user would like to write arbitrary

...i think here may be a disconnect here between some of the goals you are 
describing and the purpose of XMLWriter.  XMLWriter was originally created 
to be a wrapper arround a java.io.Writer that had convinent heper methods 
for generating a specific XML response format (ie: wt=xml) back before 
Solr even supported multiple output types.  The API was never really 
designed to be useful for generating XML response data cosisting of 
alternate XML structures.

Perhaps instead of making API additions/generalizations to XMLWriter, we 
should approach the problem differnelty and think about what a good 
reusable general pupose XML generation toolkit that could be used by 
custom response writers should look like, and then implement that -- 
refactoring the existing XMLWriter class to use/extend this new class 
where possible?
