Subject Re: XJoin, a way to use external data sources with Solr
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2016 18:45:10 GMT
Hi Charlie, 

This looks like an interesting feature, but I have a couple of questions
before giving it a try. 

I had similar needs - filtering results based on information outside of the
queried Solr collection - and I went down the post-filtering path.
More specifically I've implemented a *PostFilter* which gets the info
outside of the current Solr collection and based on that it filters the
normal search results in the *collect(int docNumber)* method later on. It's
something similar to the approach described at

Did you consider such an approach? Do you think there are some downsides of
the post-filtering approach? And what extra functionality can I get from
XJoin (if they are doing the same thing more or less)?
