Subject Re: Should I extend DIH to handle POST too?

: I guess I got the wrong impression initially.  These classes extend the
: RequestHandlerBase.

your confusion is totally understandable, and stemms from some confusion 
legacy naming convention.  there is an "UpdateHandler" API which 
is a low level API for dictating how changes are made to the underlying 
IndexWriter -- there is *NO* reason for anyone to ever do anything 
with this API (in my opinion)

there is also a "SolrRequestHandler" which dictates how Solr deals with 
external requests, and what kind of input parsing it does.  Some of these 
Request Handlers are designed for making "Updates" and many people (who 
aren't even aware of the "UpdateHandler" API mentioned above) informally 
refer to them as "Update Handlers" ... hence a lot of confusion.
