Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1925) CSV Response Writer
Date Thu, 15 Jul 2010 14:50:50 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-1925:

I tried excel 2003 and excel 2007 - both work fine with embedded newlines.  Perhaps you're
not encoding your test file correctly.

I'll repeat: "the CSV spec doesn't recommend always using encapsulators".  Why do you keep
suggesting that it does?

I didn't need to try it... I just looked at this patch, which doesn't do proper CSV encoding/escaping.

You pick one (like \n)... if there is a need for a different one, you let it be configured
/ specified by the client.

> As part of some work I'm doing, I put together a CSV Response Writer. It currently takes
all the docs resultant from a query and then outputs their metadata in simple CSV format.
The use of a delimeter is configurable (by default if there are multiple values for a particular
field they are separated with a | symbol).
