Subject RE: seemingly impossible query
Date Thu, 20 May 2010 16:26:58 GMT
I see. Well, now you're asking Solr to ignore its prime directive of
returning hits that match a query. Hehe.

I'm not sure if Solr has a "unique" attribute.

But this sounds, to me, like you will have to filter the results yourself.
But at least you hit Solr only once before doing so.

Good luck!
