Subject Re: query syntax

Hey Chris,

Here's a basic summary of what I've discovered so far getting my metadata
into a Solr index...

SolrIndexer queries metadata for a single or multiple products from a File
Manager and put them into a Solr index. It does this by an http POST to
solr/update. Very cool.

Because it's xml on the wire, its really easy to tcpdump and view the
actual POST and see what the content is :). This is how I discovered that
the indexAll was not updating solr (see below).

Okay so for a simple test, I set up the following mapping, since these
fields already exist in the Solr schema.xml file:


Note: It seems a good idea  to have an "id" field. If you look in the solr
scheme.xml file, I saw the following configuration by default:

 <!-- Field to use to determine and enforce document uniqueness.
      Unless this field is marked with required="false", it will be a
required field

Okay, so I finally ran the SolrIndexer with the -all.

This piece of code (starting at line 209  of SolrIndexer.java) was never
executed. It's checking for metadata "UUID".  I don't have this metadata

            if (metadata.getMetadata("UUID") != null) {

              if (metadata.getMetadata("Deleted") == null

                  || !"true".equals(metadata.getMetadata("Deleted"))) {

                try {



                  LOG.info("Indexed " + metadata.getMetadata("UUID"));

                } catch (Exception e) {

                  LOG.severe("Could not index " + metadata.getMetadata(

                      + " " + e.getMessage());


              } else {

                LOG.info("Skipping Deleted: " + metadata.getMetadata("UUID"


Question: Deleted looks optional, so no problem there, but what should I be
doing with UUID? I've changed this to be CAS.ProductId in the code, just to
check nothing else was causing a problem.  I thought it would be worth
asking why UUID is specified...

I've tried the single product index, which works just fine.
