Subject RE: Remote Access To Schema Data

Thanks, Jeff.

Luke will work , but it's a GUI - unless they expose an API that I can call. What I need is
a way to get the informatiom as a client call to a SolrJ SolrServer object. We want to be
able to get this info whether we are running Solr embedded or as a Web service. I guess I
could write a request handler to return this info, but I like to see what's the "right" way
to do this.

Fastest way I know of to get the schema is using the luke browser.
It returns in xml and has tons of info you probably aren't interested it.
However, it does contain information like fields and type.
