[jira] [Commented] (SOLR-12789) UIMA enhancements to allow for dynamic AE detection

Alexandre Rafalovitch commented on SOLR-12789:

Hi Aaron,

It is great to hear that there would be a healthy discussion about this. Please feel free to share the outcome of this on the developer list and it may spark further developers discussion too. Nothing is set in stone, given enough evidence to the contrary.

Still, just to re-summarize, the issue we were facing was that all the shipped examples were dead (Alchemy API...) and over multiple issues we could not figure out a way to get to the new local maximum of latest version and useful examples (UIMA has a bit of a learning curve). Nor were we able to find anybody helping us to push the discussion forward within either development community (Jira discussions) or the user community (Solr Users mailing list).

Additionally, we are trying to slim Solr down in general and have done several things towards that, including removing Javadoc from the distribution. If you were more closely connected to the community, you would see multiple of these drives all pointing in the same general direction. So, having a dead weight we could not figure what to do with over several years was very much "not cool" on all those users downloading Solr and trying to navigate their way through very full-featured product. 

And then, of course, there is a fact that we now incorporate Apache OpenNLP as well. So, there are trade-offs to keep in mind.

> I've been sitting on this patch for over 2 years (and likewise it's been running IN production for the same) ... finally got around to contributing it back to the community.  This change prepares the UIMAUpdateRequestProcessor to allow subclasses to have additional control over how the analysis engine is selected.  In my case, I wrote a sub-class that allows for *dynamic* detection of the UIMA analysis engine based on the document fields.  ie: a field in the document can be used to select different UIMA configurations and rules.
> Can someone please commit this as soon as possible.  I don't necessarily need it to be back-ported, having in 7.4.1 would suffice.
> Thanks!
