Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5103) Plugin Improvements
Date Sat, 22 Nov 2014 19:33:13 GMT


Alexandre Rafalovitch commented on SOLR-5103:

It may be worth considering that plugin may contain more than code. For example, it may contain
AdminUI screens, similar to those *admin-extra* files. Elasticsearch has something like this.

There might also be some sort of dependency in there to avoid *jar rabbits* (multiple copies
of the same shaded jars). Elasticsarch does NOT seem to have something like this.

On the positive side, a website to track the plugins and dependencies would make for a very
nice Solr demo project and would help the community actually start contributing things as
plugins, once the visibility part is solved :-)

> I think for 5.0, we should make it easier to add plugins by defining a plugin package,
ala a Hadoop Job jar, which is a self--contained archive of a plugin that can be easily installed
(even from the UI!) and configured programmatically.
