Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-2586) example work & logs directories needed?
Date Sat, 11 Jun 2011 05:01:58 GMT
example work & logs directories needed?

                 Key: SOLR-2586
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build
            Reporter: David Smiley
            Priority: Minor

Firstly, what prompted this issue was me wanting to use a git solr mirror but finding that
git's lack of empty-directory support made the "example" ant task fail. This task requires
examples/work to be in place so that it can delete its contents. Fixing this was a simple
matter of adding:
<mkdir dir="${example}/work" /><!-- in case not there -->
Right before the delete task.

But then it occurred to me, why even have a "work" directory since Jetty will apparently use
a temp directory instead. -- try for yourself (stdout snippet):
bq. 2011-06-11 00:51:26.177:INFO::Extract file:/SmileyDev/Search/lucene-solr/solr/example/webapps/solr.war
to /var/folders/zo/zoQJvqc9E0076p0THiri+k+++TI/-Tmp-/Jetty_0_0_0_0_8983_solr.war__solr__k1kf17/webapp

On my Mac, this same directory was used for multiple runs, so somehow Jetty or the VM figures
out how to reuse it.

Since this "example" setup isn't a *real* installation -- it's just for demonstration, arguably
it should not contain what it doesn't need.  Likewise, perhaps the empty example/logs directory
should be deleted. It's not used by default any way.
