Subject Re: Extending Solr's Admin functionality
Date Sun, 24 Sep 2006 22:51:43 GMT
I certainly agree that a JMX interface into Solr would be nice to  
have.  [a different topic: I've also been thinking Solr under  
NetKernel would be a nice fit also]

I still think exposing the internals of caching data, text analysis,  
and other features later like spell checking (so only available terms  
are suggested) makes sense and just as valuable as search and facet  
results currently.  That information could be exposed easily through  
request handlers.

I think the majority of the clients for Solr will be non-Java, so  
while a JMX interface would be valuable to some it wouldn't be as  
generally useful to the majority of Solr users (my hunch).

But don't let that deter you.  JMX is cool stuff.
