      Description

      LUCENE-6789 changed the default similarity for IndexSearcher to BM25 and renamed "DefaultSimilarity" to "ClassicSimilarity"

      Solr needs to be updated accordingly:

      • a "ClassicSimilarityFactory" should exist w/expected behavior/javadocs
      • default behavior (in 6.0) when no similarity is specified in configs should (ultimately) use BM25 depending on luceneMatchVersion
        • either by assuming BM25SimilarityFactory or by changing the internal behavior of DefaultSimilarityFactory
      • comments in sample configs need updated to reflect new default behavior
      • ref guide needs updated anywhere it mentions/implies that a particular similarity is used (or implies TF-IDF is used by default)
