Subject Re: Windows-Share to Solr is not working properly

Hi Alexander,

It's hard to figure out exactly what you have configured from your email,
but here are a couple of points:

(1) ManifoldCF does not extract dates from binary files; it will only
supply dates from file metadata.  So MCF is supplying the date from the
modification date of the Windows file.
(2) The JCIFS connector provides the same metadata date value in two ways:

    rd.addField("lastModified", lastModifiedDate.toString());

This was done for backwards compatibility reasons.  You can control which
metadata value name is used for the ModifiedDate field on the Solr
connection's Schema tab.

As for the "lastModified" data, you can either map that to a field you
don't have in your solr schema, or you can suppress it entirely by creating
an entry for Field Mapping that has "lastModified" on the left and a blank
field on the right, and then clicking the "Add" button.  Bear in mind that
1.5 had a bug in this functionality which was fixed in 1.5.1.
