Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2534) Add min() and max() on strings
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2015 02:19:14 GMT


Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-2534:


You might want to get input from the Lucene guys about how to compare strings.
It seems easy, but it's not necessarily so.

It's a good thing to dive into the code and get a feel for where/how to change the code.
If I may presume to offer advice though, you might save yourself a lot of work by posting
the high-level approach you think is appropriate and soliciting comments before polishing
the code. On more than one occasion I've changed code and had a comment come back
"Why not do YYYYY instead" and thrown stuff away ;).

[~rcmuir] Do you know of any "prior art" or gotchas that Praveen should be aware of?
