Elastic search is great, but any road map for a similar Solr connector?

There are still a few critical features not on the Elastic search (e.g. field collapsing), which for us, is a must have, so would be great to see a connector to Solr. Any plans?

This one is a tough one it would be great to have a Solr plugin. All technology has its seasons Spring, Summer, Fall , and Winter , then dies. I think that Solr is its Summer or Fall. As ElasticSearch is its early Spring.

« Back to question.

Hello,

Not planned for now, Couchbase is quite happy with the Elasticsearch plugin and it looks like Elasticsearch is currently the most interesting technology for search/indexing.

As you know Couchbase is an open source project and many things can come from the community; but I have not heard about a Solr-Couchbase plugin.

I agree, Elastic search is great. But, for us it lacks a critical feature (Field Collapsing/Combining - https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/256).

But your right, if we go down the couchbase route, we would/could just scratch our own itch.

Thanks for the reply.
