Subject Re: Stanbol with ElasticSearch
Date Mon, 02 Sep 2013 13:58:20 GMT

the proposal sounds cool, indeed. But I'd like to have more arguments 
than a mere trend because a new product appeared.

I know some of those arguments in favour Elastic Search vs. Apache Solr. 
But, from my understanding, Stanbol just uses Solr because is internally 
convenient for what the EntityHub and other components need. And, 
although the REST API is publicly exposed, that's not its main purpose, 
and could be removed without affecting any core feature.

Therefore, I'd be happy to listen some arguments that such contribution 
would actually improve something in Stanbol. Could be performance, 
flexibility, etc, but something more than "Elastic Search is cool!", you
