Subject RE: XML data in solr field
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2010 06:04:38 GMT
Thankyou Tommy. But the real problem here is that the xml is dynamic and the element names
will be different in different docs which means that there will be a lot of field names to
be added in schema if I were to index those xml nodes separately.
Is it possible to have nested indexing (xml within xml) in solr without the overhead of adding
all those inner xml nodes as actual fields in solr schema?

  Do you have the option of just importing each xml node as a
field/value when you add the document?

That'll let you do the search easily. If you need to store the raw XML,
you can use an extra field.

this xml structure i.e. if I search  for Venue, I should get "Radio City Music Hall" as the
result and not the complete tag like<Venue value="Radio City Music Hall" />. Is this
supported in solr?? If it is, how can this be implemented??
