Subject Re: Custom SolrQueryRequest/SolrQueryResponse

: Herein lies the problem from what I can tell:  I don’t have any control

: subclassing both of these to hold a List of requests and responses, with

: All methods are implemented to delegate directly to the req/res that the

: results appropriately.

whoa... back up.

why do you feel the need to subclass these at all?

why don't you just make add the multiple DocLists (from each of the 
queries) to the same SolrQueryResponse ... there's no limit to the nuber 
of DocLists that can be added -- you can even give each of them their own 

For that matter: if you have other metadata specific to the individual 
"component" requests, you can build up a NamedList (or Map or Collection) 
containing all of that metadata (including hte DocList) and then add that 
to the SolrQueryResponse.

This is already how many of the existing stock components are designed, 
all you are doing differnetly then some of them is executing multiple 
"main" searches that produce a DocList -- but i've made several custom 
components in the past that do the same thing and had no problems.  If 
this doens't seem feasible for your usecase, then please explain in 
moredepth what your use case is and why it doesn't seem like this would
