Hybris 6.0 Solr misses languages

Since some time I am wondering what hybris thinks about adding out of the box languages to solr schema? I am sure for example spanish and also dutch are contained out of the box since at least two years and they are still not maintained in the solr schema.

Point is not that I dont know how to add them but I wonder how you sell this as a solution and do not care about such things (that can be easily fixed).

In case you dont want to preset those languages in solr I would propose that at least you would give a way of saying that you could configure for a language a kind of "solr schema language", so that way the indexed value for example would be in dutch but when creating the field name for solr we would use english so we would have applied the same index / search behaviour like for english - for sure thats not optimal but at least your index does not fail.

But honestly I would expect that you provide the correct solr schema for the OOTB languages you ship the platform.

I can't speak to this particular issue, but in general changes anywhere in the product occur due to items like (not a full list):

  • Bug fixes

  • Feedback from customers/partners on new features/changes

  • Internal feedback

  • Industry trends

There is obviously a large backlog of ideas on the roadmap ( but unfortunately there are constraints on time. The development teams can't get to every single feature they'd like. Supporting all languages completely throughout the entire application is a monumental effort, and as much as the teams try to do so there are some misses.

For your case in particular it could be that there are enough examples in the schema.xml that you could come up with what you need. It could be something like Spanish isn't configured because there are multiple stemming filters to choose from, and Spanish can change a lot depending on which country you're in. You can see there is some support for languages like Spanish as there is a stopwords_es.txt file.

NOTE: Dutch is not a language that comes with vanilla SAP Hybris Commerce.
