Subject Re: Advice on how to work with pure JSON data.
Date Fri, 21 Apr 2017 05:21:31 GMT
One thing I forgot to mention in my original post is that I wish to do this using the SolrJ
I have my own rest server that presents a common API to our users, but the back-end can be

anything I wish. I have been using "that other Lucene based product" :), but I wish to stick
a product that is more open and that perhaps I can contribute to. 

I've searched for SolrJ examples for child documents and unfortunately there are far too 
many references to implementations based off of older versions of Solr. Specifically, I would

like to insert beans with multiple child collections in them, but the latest I've read says
is not currently possible. Is that still true? 

In short, It isn't so important that REST based requests / responses from Solr are pure JSON

so long as I can do what I want from the java client. 

Do you know if there have been recent additions / enhancements up through 6.5 that make 
this more straight-forward?

This is one of the features of the epic 
Until it's done the only way to achieve this is to properly set many params 

Note, here I assume that children mapping is static ie there is a limited 
list of optional scopes. 
Indexing and searching arbitrary JSON is esoteric (XML DB like) problem. 
Also, beware of I hope to 
fix it soon.
