We have a ColdFusion-based CMS product which can interface with Solr for
search functionality. ColdFusion ships with an ancient version of Solr
(old enough that it crashes when the search criteria includes a leading
wildcard), so to get current Solr functionality... we have to interface
directly to Solr. We don't bundle Solr with our product, so it's
important to be able to interface to as wide a variety of Solr releases
Our initial implementation used Solr 4.10.2, and includes customizations
in schema.xml and solrconfig.xml. We have since made some minor changes
for compatibility with Solr 5.x, but our goal is to minimize the
version-specific information so we can create new cores without having
to worry about what Solr version is in play.
Aside from keeping the luceneMatchVersion setting in agreement with the
actual Solr release in use, what other configuration and/or schema
changes do we need to worry about?
[enhancement request: set luceneMatchVersion to the running version if
it's not found in solrconfig.xml - and/or allow a setting of 'current'
so this doesn't have to be touched without specific reason to do so -
any thoughts? Am I missing something?]
