Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8396) Investigate PointField to replace NumericField types
Date Fri, 25 Mar 2016 19:20:25 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-8396:

bq. If we release 6.0.0 without some form of the patch for this issue, users who install 6.0.0
and don't change their configs will be unable to upgrade to 7.x

For users upgrading from versions < 6.0, there will be issues regardless.  I don't believe
there is any code anywhere than upgrades numeric types in an index.  So even if we get PointField
in for 6.0, a person upgrading from 5.5 will have the old numeric stuff in their index, which
would cease working if/when that old numeric stuff is removed.  The simple answer is: we need
to keep the old numeric stuff around longer regardless of when we have support for the newer
Point stuff.

in most respects. We should explore the benefits of using it in Solr and hence, if appropriate,
switch over to using them.
