Subject Re: Difference between Search result from Admin console and solr/browse
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2012 22:54:07 GMT

The /browse Request Handler is built to showcase the xml documents in solr/example/exampledata
and if you want to use it for your own data and schema you must modify the templates in solr/example/conf/velocity/
to display whatever you want to display.

Given that you use an unmodified example schmema, you should be able to get more or less the
same results as in Admin console (which uses the Lucene query parser on default field "text"
ootb) by querying for text:voicemail. If you then click the "enable debug" link at the bottom
of the page and then click the "toggle all fields" links below each result hit, you will see
what is contained in each and every field.

What you probably *should* do is to transform your oracle XMLs into XML that corresponds with
Solr's schema, and you should tweak your schema and Velocity templates to match what you'd
like to output in the reults. A simple way to prototype transforms is to write an XSL and
using the XSLTUpdateRequestHandler at solr/update/xslt instead of the XML handler. See
