That error indicates that there was a Solr exception processing your document. Can you post the Solr exception here?
So I updated and this is the error I get in the log now:
Service interruption reported for job 1279719088042 connection 'Giantbomb RSS': Error 500 from ingestion request; ingestion will be retried again later
I’m very thankful for your help.
Yesterday should be fine. I overlooked something and have checked in a fix. My apologies.
That’s strange because I did the checkout from https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/lcf/trunk yesterday and I did a update today and rebuilt everything so things should be in sync with trunk.
The trace you gave me is out of date wrt trunk by at least a month. Would you be willing to synch up to the latest LCF, and see how you do with that? If you still see a trace, I’d be happy to analyze it and perhaps check in a patch.
The 'connection working' from rss doesn't mean much. But the 'connection working' from solr means that lcf could talk to solr and do a ping.
In any case, you should never see an NPE from lcf, so I am going to look into this at earliest opportunity. It is possible that the NPE is masking some other error, but maybe it is just broken.

Subject: java.lang.NullPointerException while trying to crawl RSS feed to Solr
Date: July 21, 2010
Time: 6:38:7 AM
I have setup a connector against a RSS-feed with output to a Solr server. The repository connection and output connection report that the connection is ok.
When I run the job it seems to retrieve the RSS feed and process everything as it should, the data does not seem to get indexed into Solr however.
If I look in the lcf log file I find the following:
Error tossed: null
I guess there’s an error when it tries to post the data to Solr, but I can’t figure out what the problem is. If I look at the catalina log for the tomcat where Solr is run I can’t find any errors or anything else.
Does anyone have any tips?
