-Re: CoreDescriptor explanation and possible bug

I went through the javadocs for the CoreContainer and CoreDescriptor classes (20th-Aug nightly, the latest I could find). The steps for creating a SolrCore now appear to be: (Note for the benefit of those who might stumble upon this through a websearch - this is not a HOWTO but my best guess which may not be correct)
2. cc = CoreContainer.Initializer.initialize()
3. cd = new CoreDescriptor(cc, "core01", "path/solrHome/for/core01")
4. SolrCore sc = cc.create(cd)
Is this correct?
To specify my problem in another way, I have a solrconfig.xml but no schema.xml. I create a IndexSchema object at runtime. I want to now get a SolrCore object.

It is likely to be related to how you initialize Solr & create your
SolrCore; there has been a few changes to ensure there is always a
CoreContainer created which (as its name stands), holds a reference to all
There is a CoreContainer.Initializer class that allows to easily create that
CoreContainer (even if you don't have a solr.xml).
Hope this helps,
