solr using:Processing a MySQL DB and XML Hybrid into a Solr Index?


A Table in MySQL that has a few normal fields and one text field that holds XML

I need to use Solr Data Import Handler to process this table into a Solr Index.
However, the XML field needs to be parsed into several other solr fields each


  1. Is it possible to do this without having to write a custom Transformer? If yes how. Can I use XPathEntityProcessor with a my SQL DB as datasource?

  2. If I write a custom transformer, how exactly do I configure it in dataConfig?

  3. I am using older version of solr (1.4.1), so can I just drop a new jar with new class into my solr web-app?

The thing I am quite unsure about is how I need to configure the data-config.xml to do this. If anyone has any examples, please share! Thanks.
