Subject Re: Solr CoreAdmin RELOAD + Properties
Date Sat, 29 Mar 2014 15:18:51 GMT

On a _very_ quick glance, I don't see where the reload action
(coreAdminHandler.handleReloadAction) makes any attempt whatsoever to
even _look_ for any properties to update, so I'd guess it needs a
patch if there's any hope.

So go ahead and create the patch IMO.

This seems like a reasonable idea to me, anyone else think differently?

a property value on a core in Solr 3.x you could run the CREATE command again and this would
overwrite the value. In Solr 4.x you get a error saying core exitst (make sense) but I can't
see a way of update the properties values via a url without unloading and re creating the
core (which is not great a this could cause a outage on the live system).
