Subject Re: conditional sorting
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2009 15:15:44 GMT
I tried to simplify the problem, but the point is that I could have really
complex requirements. For instance, "if in the first 5 results none are
older than one year, use sort by X, otherwise sort by Y".

So, the question is, is there a way to make Solr recognize complex
situations and apply different sorting criterion.
