Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8110) Start enforcing field naming recomendations in next X.0 release?
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2015 08:40:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-8110?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14939513#comment-14939513

Alan Woodward commented on SOLR-8110:
-------------------------------------

+1

We should log a warning for each dodgy fieldname in 'lenient' mode, so that users are aware
that they're running the risk of some functionality not working.

> For a very long time now, Solr has made the following "recommendation" regarding field
naming conventions...
> bq. field names should consist of alphanumeric or underscore characters only and not
start with a digit.  This is not currently strictly enforced, but other field names will not
have first class support from all components and back compatibility is not guaranteed.  ...
> I'm opening this issue to track discussion about if/how we should start enforcing this
as a rule instead (instead of just a "recommendation") in our next/future X.0 (ie: major)
release.
> The goals of doing so being:
> * simplify some existing code/apis that currently use hueristics to deal with lists of
field and produce strange errors when the huerstic fails (example: ReturnFields.add)
> * reduce confusion/pain for new users who might start out unaware of the recommended
conventions and then only later encountering a situation where their field names are not supported
by some feature and get frustrated because they have to change their schema, reindex, update
index/query client expectations, etc...
