Subject Re: processing documents in solr
Date Sun, 28 Jul 2013 14:03:51 GMT
Why wouldn't a simple timestamp work for the ordering? Although
I guess "simple timestamp" isn't really simple if the time settings

So how about a simple counter field in your documents? Assuming
you're indexing from SolrJ, your setup is to query q=*:*&sort=counter desc.
Take the counter from the first document returned. Increment for
each doc for the life of the indexing run. Now you've got, for all intents
and purposes, an identity field albeit manually maintained.

Then use your counter field as Shawn suggests for pulling all the
data out.
