Subject RE: Xsl for query output
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2011 19:30:27 GMT
It depends upon whether you want Solr to do the XSL processing, or the browser.  After fussing
a bit, and doing some reading and thinking, we decided it was best to let the browser do the
work, at least in our case.

If the browser is doing the processing, you don't need to modify sorlconfig.xml for that,
and where you put it depends a bit on where the HTML page that points to the xsl came from.

What we did was create a separate directory called "search" in the webapp directory (parallel
to admin, WEB-INF and the like).  In there we placed three things:  our HTML page, our .css
file and our xsl.  (That way, when Solr updates, we know exactly how to handle it).

The HTML page refers to the xsl thusly:

			  <input name="stylesheet" type="hidden">

With a value of


(We use javascript to generate the HTML, so it isn't in the tag initially).

We started with a copy of example.xsl and modified it *extensively*.  If you are not a programmer,
trying to edit the xsl to produce what you want may be more adventure than you want to tackle.

Subject: Xsl for query output

I am new to solr and not a web developer.  I am a data warehouse guy trying to use solr for
the first time.  I am familiar with xsl but I can't figure out how to get the example.xsl
to be applied to my xml results.  I am running tomcat and have solr working.  I copied over
the solr mulitiple core example to the conf directory on my tomcat server. I also added the
war file and the search is fine.  I can't seem to figure out what I need to add to the solrcofig.xml
or where ever so that the example.xsl is used.  Basically can someone tell me where to put
the xsl and where to configure its usage?
