Subject Re: config JoinQParserPlugin

Hi Chris,

> but also exactly what response you got
I didn't get any response. Even with debug=true, there was nothing at all printed after the
curl command. Nothing on the Solr log file either. (Are there higher debug levels on Solr
log?) That was the reason I thought I needed to add JoinQParserPlugin explicitly in solrconfig.xml.

Thanks for your and other email saying JoinQParserPlugin is Solr already. After reading
your email, I tried a simple example of collections "brands" and "products" used in this url:

I also added -v to curl with !join syntax and saw some output:
< HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
< Content-Length: 0

Then, I tried join syntax from Solr admin console and browser rather than using curl. After
a few tries, cross core join worked with the simple "brands" and "products" collections! :)
So, as you said, both of the following worked:

http://localhost:8983/solr/brands/select?q=*:*&fq={!join from=brand_id to=id fromIndex=products_shard1_replica1}name:iPad
http://localhost:8983/solr/brands/select?q=*:*&fq={!type=join from=brand_id to=id fromIndex=products_shard1_replica1}name:iPad

However, without _shard1_replica1 in "products",
http://localhost:8983/solr/brands/select?q=*:*&fq={!join from=brand_id to=id fromIndex=products}name:iPad

gave this error: (I'm using SolrCloud from sole-4.6.0)
msg">Cross-core join: no such core products

It is inconvenient to specify the exact shard and replica on join queries. But, this is a
good step forward for me. I'll try my more complicated schemas now. Thanks so much to you
and others' replies!
