Subject RE: Automatically enumerating facets: is it possible?
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2007 18:08:07 GMT
: Solr's model however seems to be much nicer in that you can define on
: the fly what facets you want on a query by query basis and even allow
: 'users' to define their own facets.  (if you were crazy or have a
: suitably small index) of course)

maybe not individual 'users' but client "applications" certainly ...
several Solr instances i work with have the dismax handler configured
several times with differnet defaults for each of several main use cases
... and then various client applications use one of these different
instances by specifing qt=blah based on their needs, but they can still
override any default values based on their specific needs.

first and formost the StandardRequestHandler and DisMaxRequestHandlers are
designed to be reusable by anyone and have lots of ways to tweak their
behavior (url params, config params, etc) ... but with only a little java
knowledge it's *really* easy to write a custom RequestHandler that can
implement whatever biz rules you might want.
