Subject RE: Stateless queries to secured SOLR server.

Thanks for that Shawn. What I am doing is working fine now. I need the middle proxy to audit
and modify what client sends to solr (based on user rights) not to mention keeping solr from
direct exposure to internet.

That's a different use case than I had imagined.  Thanks for the detail.

My statement about SolrJ is correct if the code that will handle the response is Java.  Sounds
like it's not -- you've just said that the code that will actually decode and use the response
is javascript.

When the code that will handle the response is Java, SolrJ is a perfect fit, because SolrJ
will handle decoding the response and the programmer doesn't need to worry about the format,
they are given an object that contains the full response, where information can easily be
extracted by someone familiar with typical Java objects.

There probably is a way to access the full response "text" with SolrJ, rather than the decoded
object, but I do not know enough about the low-level details to tell you how that might be
accomplished.  If you can figure that part out, then you could use SolrJ and have access to
its methods for constructing the query.

With your Java code simply acting as a proxy, the way you're going about it might be the best
option -- build the http request with a particular wt parameter, get the response, and pass
the response on unmodified.

Thanks,
Shawn
