Secret Fusion: Developing, Testing, Deploying Parsers Using Java

Wednesday | 4:30PM - 4:50PM | Columbia 6

The Fusion platform takes the open source Solr search engine and extends it with various features and functions only found in enterprise-grade tools. Part of that functionality is the use of parsers to transform documents as they are crawled.

This session will cover the undocumented implementation of Fusion parsers. We will cover:
- how to implement a Fusion parser using Java
- recommendations on how to unit test the parser using JUnit and EasyMock
- how to deploy the parser
- how to define your input fields to automatically create the various UI components used to configure the parser

If coding scares you this is not the talk for you. If you want to take Fusion to the next level, then you've come to the right place.

This is one of three talks covering custom implementations of index and query stages, and parsers in Fusion.

Attendee Takeaway
The intended audience will be interested if they are Fusion developers, they are looking for ways to customize document parsing, they are Java developers looking to extend Fusion parsers.

Intended Audience
The intended audience for this talk is Fusion developers looking to extend Fusion to do additional processing of documents at parser-time using Java. They should have a cursory knowledge of Fusion and search. They should be hands-on Java Developers.
