Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8521) Add documentation for how to use Solr JDBC driver with SQL client like DB Visualizer
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2016 15:21:39 GMT


Kevin Risden commented on SOLR-8521:

The PDF attached is mostly screenshots - if the hope is that the Ref Guide will show screenshots,
it would be helpful if those were attached directly to the issue. I don't know that the page
makes sense with that many step-by-step screenshots - we don't even have that many covering
the Admin UI, and DBVisualizer is not an application developed by this community - but a few
key ones would probably be helpful.

I agree that it is probably too many screenshots for a general purpose reference guide. The
rough outline of steps in the description is really what is required for connecting any JDBC
SQL client. I wanted the first guide to be extra clear to start with and then can trim down
the unnecessary steps. I'm thinking about writing a blog post about this and that would probably
be a better place for a step-by-step guide.

As a side note: the screenshots will have to be updated with a non snapshot build of Solr.
It would make sense to take the final screenshots maybe once an RC is cut or at least update
the screenshots at that time.

> Currently this requires the following:
> * a JDBC SQL client program (like DBVisualizer or SQuirrelSQL)
> * all jars from solr/dist/solrj-lib/* to be on the SQL client classpath
> * solr/dist/solr-solrj-6.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar on the SQL client classpath
> * a valid JDBC connection string (like jdbc:solr://SOLR_ZK_CONNECTION_STRING?collection=COLLECTION_NAME)
> * without SOLR-8213, the username/password supplied by the SQL client will be ignored.
