Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1602) Refactor SOLR package structure to include o.a.solr.response and move QueryResponseWriters in there
Date Wed, 30 Dec 2009 16:34:29 GMT


Chris A. Mattmann commented on SOLR-1602:

Hi Ryan:


bq. Sounds fine... except for the back compatibility issues - especially for people upgrading
with the same solrconfig.xml 

There are 8 response writers defined by default in solrconfig.xml. That doesn't seem too unwieldy
a job for find/replace as far as configuration upgrades for someone moving from SOLR x.y to
SOLR 1.5.

As for code, yes, unfortunately users will have to recompile their response writers and update
a few package names/imports per response writer which they'd probably want/have to do anyways
on an upgrade regardless. 

bq. When we moved all the handlers to a new package o.a.solr.handler, it left a bunch of deprecated
calsses in o.a.solr.request.

You could certainly do this, and I've done it before in other projects. The tradeoff is, what
type of message from the Java compiler do you want to notify you as a consumer of the SOLR
java classes:

# A deprecation (that could easily get swallowed if someone compiles with deprecation notifications
# A compiler error, forcing the user to perform the small amount of legwork to update package

I'm a fan of number 2, and I'd venture to guess the work wouldn't be too bad in this case
since most of the ReponseWriters aren't friendly to user extension or sub-classing.

bq. Also, if we make a 'response' package, seems should go there.

Agreed, the patch I attached should move it there.

> Currently all o.a.solr.request.QueryResponseWriter implementations are curiously located
in the o.a.solr.request package. Not only is this package getting big (30+ classes), a lot
of them are misplaced. There should be a first-class o.a.solr.response package, and the response
related classes should be given a home there. Patch forthcoming.
