Subject How to ascertain Lucene index structure?
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2011 09:09:10 GMT
When trying to get Solr working with some pre-created Lucene indexes of 
unknown structure, I was amazed to see Luke read them straight away.

Solr is not so co-operative, I need to describe the field types. I do 
not know how to do this.

I was wondering how Luke knows how to read the index, and if I could 
somehow use Luke (with a plugin, maybe) to dump a description of the 
index, or somehow mimic Luke's logic?  But is there an easier way?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation
