Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-7084) FreeTextSuggester Nullpointer when building dictionary
Date Mon, 09 Feb 2015 09:23:34 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-7084:

Just throwing an exception is not very elegant. We could mask the exception and return empty
list without further notice but that would render the API inconsistent. Here are two options:
A) Fail the whole request with temporary error code (e.g. 503 Service Unavailable)
B) Fail only the request for this dictionary, returning empty list and an error code (SuggesterResult)

I'm tempted to suggest A here for the sake of simplicity. If requesting multiple dictionaries
in one request, you'll not get a response before all dictionaries are available and working.
