Subject Re: Solr middle-ware?

Hi Markus,

Thanks for quick reply. I dare to differ that anything with 'embedded
Perl scripting' is an easy suggestion for a random new/intermediate
Solr developer to handle. http://xkcd.com/1171/ and all that ;-)

Still, I appreciate you sharing your approach, as at least it shows
one possible path.

Regards,
   Alex.

Limitations and rewrites are usually just a bunch of regular expressions, so it is not that
hard.
