Subject Re: C# API for Solr
Date Sun, 01 Apr 2007 16:22:12 GMT
What would make things consistent for the client api's is a prescribed set
of implementations for a solr release.  For example, executing searches with
these parameters, support for facets requires those parameters, updates
should be called in this manner, etc.  For lack of a better term, a
loosely-coupled interface definition.  Those requirements could then be
versioned, and the various api's could advertise themselves as solr
1.0compliant, solr
1.1 compliant, and so on.  The solr release dictates the requirements for
compliance; the api maintainer is responsible for meeting those
requirements.  This would also be handy when certain features are
deprecated, i.e. when the /update url is changed.

Regarding C#, this would be easy enough to implement.  There are common
community methods for building/compilation, test libraries, and help
documentation, so doing things consistently with Erik and the solrb library
works for C# as well (and I assume most other languages.)
