Thanks so much for accepting the project proposal. I've started the coding
work. I'll keep you all posted of my work.

I have a question regarding one of the interfaces in the orig version.

The [1] is used by the Hadoop Plugin [2] and it only has 2
functions which are implemented by Hadoop Plugin. Is this interface really
needed? Can't I just use the functions as is in Hadoop class without
needing to get the IOReporter?

Hi Ajay,

Thanks for the reply and the links to the email threads. I saw a response
on this thread from Shawn Helsey about this as well. I didn't realize your
focus was Luke, then Lucene, then Solr - the proposal title and the JIRA
both mention Lucene/Solr module, which probably misled me - I guess I
should have read the doc more carefully... Thank you for the clarification
and good luck with your project.

Hi Sujit,

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