Grokbase Groups Lucene dev July 2013
Hi Sujit,

Thanks for your comments. There was actually some discussion earlier about
whether or not Solr was the highest priority.

Right now I don't think I could do the integration with Solr since (a) I
don't know enough Javascript to work with Solr and (b) The time for
submitting proposals for the program is over.

The project duration is scheduled till end of October. After that or if I
get time during project period I'll try and work with other functionalities
of Luke and then try for Solr. I think its best to make Luke completely
functioning before integrating with the trunk, and this is better in
incremental steps.

Hi Ajay,

Since you asked for feedback from the community... a lot of what Luke used
to do is now already available in Solr's admin tool. From Luke's feature
set that you had in your proposal Google doc. the only ones I think are
/not/ preset are the following:

* Browse by document number
* selectively delete documents from the index - there is no delete
document page AFAIK, but you can still do this from the URL.
* reconstruct the original document fields, edit them and re-insert to the
index - you can do this using code as long as the fields are stored, but
there is no reconstruct page.
* optimize indexes - can be done from the URL but probably no page/button
for this.

As a Solr user, for me your tool would be most useful if it concentrated
on these areas, and if it could be integrated into the existing admin tool
(the Solr 4 one of course). I am not sure what the Solr4 admin tool uses,
if its Pivot then I guess thats what you should use (and by extension, if
not, you probably should use what the current tool uses so its easy to
maintain going forward). Benefit to users such as myself would be unified
look-and-feel so not much of a learning curve/barrier to adoption.

Just my $0.02...

Hi all,

I want to do the Jira issue LUCENE 2562 : Make Luke a Lucene/Solr
module [1] as a project. This project will be for the ASF-ICFOSS programme
[2] by Luciano Resende [3] and the proposal has to be submitted before July
19th, 2013.
For this I urgently need a mentor from the Lucene community, so would
someone please consent to be my mentor for this project? I understand if
you are busy with other development commitments, but I'd be happy with a
little general guidance, and some reminding if I'm going away the proposed
goals too much.
The proposal is at :
I'm focusing mainly on the porting of plugins of the app. If you have
some suggestions for the proposal I will be glad to hear them, and I will
give you comment access if you want as well.
