Subject Re: Error while trying to load JSON
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2012 20:03:46 GMT
It seems that you are using the bbyopen data. If have made up your mind on
using the JSON data then simply store it in ElasticSearch instead of Solr
as they do take any valid JSON structure. Otherwise, you can download the
xml archive from bbyopen and prepare a schema:

Here are some generic instructions to familiarize you with building schema
given arbitrary data, it should help speed things up, they don't apply
directly to bbyopen data though:

Keep in mind, ES also does you a favor by building the right schema
dynamically on the fly as you feed it the JSON data. So it is much easier
to work with.
