Subject Re: Solr: Images, Docs and Binary data
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2011 18:38:10 GMT
Hi, your answers were really helpfull

I was thinking in putting the base64 encoded file into a string field. But
was a little worried about solr trying to stem it or vectorize or those
stuff.

Seen in the example of the schema.xml:
    <!--Binary data type. The data should be sent/retrieved in as Base64
encoded Strings -->
    <fieldtype name="binary" class="solr.BinaryField"/>

Anyone knows any storage for images that performs well, other than FS ?

Thanks
