Subject Re: Solr Stream vs Export Request Handlers
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2018 08:32:31 GMT

Yes, you can choose which to use, it should give  you about same result. If you already work
with the Solr search API it would be the easiest for you to consume /export as you don't need
to learn the new syntax and parse the Tuple response. However, if you need to do stuff with
the docs as you stream them from Solr, then streaming expressions lets you enrich the docs,
modify, join etc on the fly.

PS: When the /export docs says it uses a streaming tecnique, it does NOT mean that it has
uses the solr feature streaming expressions :)
