how to create a custom type in Solr

Thomas Joiner
I need to have a field that supports ranges...for instance, you specify a
range of 8000 to 9000 and if you search for 8500, it will hit.  However,
when googling, I really couldn't find any resources on how to create your
own field type in Solr.

But from what I was able to find, the AbstractSubTypeFieldType class seems
like a good starting point for the type that I want to make, however that
isn't in the current version of Solr that I am using (1.4.1).  So I guess my
question is: is Solr 3.0 ready for production?  If so, how do I get it? Do I
just need to checkout the code from svn and build it myself?  If so should I
just check out the latest, or is there a particular branch that I should go
with that is reliable?  If I switch to 3.0, will I need to reindex my data,
or has the data format not changed?

And if 3.0 isn't ready for production, what would you suggest I do?  Is the
AbstractSubTypeFieldType such that I can backport it and use it with 1.4.1,
or does it use specific features of 3.0 that I would have to backport as
well, in which case it would become a horribly convoluted mess where I would
be better off just going with 3.0.  And I guess this comes back to help on
finding resources about implementing custom types...it would just be more
complicated if I couldn't use the AbstractSubTypeFieldType.

(This is my first time posting to a mailing list, so if I have violated
horribly some etiquette of mailing lists, please tell me).

Regards,
Thomas

Your use case can be solved by splitting the range into two int's:

Document: {title: My document, from: 8000, to: 9000}
Query: q=title:"My" AND (from:[* TO 8500] AND to:[8500 TO *])

Re: how to create a custom type in Solr

Thomas Joiner
This will work for a single range.  However, I may need to support multiple
ranges, is there a way to do that?

Use OR between multiple ranges.

Re: how to create a custom type in Solr

Mark Allan
I see you have the exact same requirements I did and have also hit the  
same problem I did a month-or-so ago.  I ended up writing a custom  
field type based on solr.schema.PointType and making some very minor  
modifications to one of the Solr classes (AbstractSubfieldType) to  
allow the field a certain degree of repeatability without affecting  
existing functionality.

I offered my modifications to the list but no-one seemed interested.  
Let me know if you want the code and a walkthrough of what it does.

Mark,

A good way to get your changes/improvements into Solr is by putting them in
JIRA.  Please see http://wiki.apache.org/solr/HowToContribute

Thanks!

Hi Otis,

For the class which requires only minor modifications, I tested it to  
ensure it doesn't break existing compatibility/functionality, and then  
I created an issue in JIRA and uploaded a patch:
        https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1986

I then posted a message about it to the list and got the following  
responses.

When I replied to ask if that meant the changes wouldn't be included,  
I got no response. As there's been no activity in JIRA, I didn't  
bother putting any of my other changes into JIRA as they all relied on  
that one.

Re: how to create a custom type in Solr

Thomas Joiner
I'd love to see your code on this, however what I've really been wondering
is the following: When did AbstractSubTypeFieldType get added?  It isn't in
1.4.1 (as far as I can tell that's the latest one that is bundled on their
site).  So, do I just need to grab it from subversion, and build it?  And if
so, is there a particular revision that I should go with?  Or should I just
pull trunk and use that, and last of all, is trunk stable enough to be used
in production?

Regards,
Thomas

Re: how to create a custom type in Solr

Thomas Joiner
Sorry to bother you, but since I haven't had a reply in a week, I figured
I'd try asking again...

What build of Solr are you using personally?  Are you just using a nightly
build, or is there a specific build that you are using?  Has it had any
major screw-ups for you?

And I still would love to see your code.

Regards,
Thomas

Re: how to create a custom type in Solr

Mark Allan
Hi Thomas,

Sorry for not replying before now - I've had your email flagged in my  
mail client to remind me to reply, but I've been so busy recently I  
never got round to it.

I'll package up the necessary java files and send you the attachment  
directly instead of posting a zip file to the mailing list, which in  
most places would be against list etiquette.
