Subject Re: Solr Update Handler Failes with Some Doc Characters
Date Wed, 09 May 2007 16:06:13 GMT

I specify the following encoding when POSTING the data to Solr:

text/xml; charset=utf-8

The encoding of the actual XML is also UTF-8.

I see that the update handler fails even if the character is NOT right next to XML closing
tag. If the character is anywhere in any of the XML tags, the update handler fails to parse
the XML.

Normally if there is a charset mixup, you will just get weird looking results.
I suppose that if a char that is greater than 128 is used, and Solr is
treating as UTF-8, then the following char would be treated as part of
a single multibyte character.  Hence if the char is directly followed
by XML markup, part of that XML markup will be lost (hence the parse

In short, this is probably a char encoding issue.  What character
encoding are you using when posting to Solr, and is it declared in the
HTTP header?
