Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1668) Declarative configuration meta-data for Solr plugins
Date Fri, 18 Dec 2009 04:28:18 GMT


Erik Hatcher commented on SOLR-1668:

Yeah, for sure annotations make sense to leverage here for part of it.  

As for user vs. code friendly - I'm of the opinion that they can be one and the same basically.
 setStopWordFile(SolrFile f) has a lot of metadata in it.  Why not simply File?  I just figured
we might want to abstract that one step from file system directness.

@Required makes sense for mandatory ones, indeed.  This is (with my dated knowledge of Ant
internals) where Ant does the runtime kinda validation in the execute() method for a Task.
 Maybe they've gone a step further with annotations now?  

And having a mechanism to override the parameter name or key, sure - but as much should be
induced from the method signature as possible.  Making it a rich descriptive interface.

This can be very useful for building tools around Solr where this meta data can be used to
assist users in configuring solr. One common mechanism to provide this meta data is by using
standard Java Beans for the different configuration constructs where the properties define
the configurable attributes and annotations are used to provide extra information about them.
