Subject Re: About solr fields (dynamic query)
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 15:58:43 GMT

In my opinion, you are trying to use Solr as a complete and classic
database but the thing is that the best scenario where Solr rocks is just
for fast search data access. Thus, you just should index those data
candidate to be searched for. My personal suggestion is that you think
about how to divide (even replicate if necessary)  the data that you will
usually search for in Solr and the persistent data in a persistent (classic
or not) database.

 If you have to do some computation, calcs, etc. with the data stored:

1. You should use that relational database to execute the dynamic query.
2. You can run some batch cron process that executes the dynamic query and
then index the results in Solr in a defined field - let´s suppose it´s
called *calc_result*. Then, you can search for that results easy and
quickly with a Solr query similar to: q=calc_result:[ startRange TO
