Solr now powers the search of many enterprise applications and high profile web sites. Long before Solr shone on enterprise search, Lucene – Solr’s core search library, was and still is used to drive the search of applications pervasively around the world. In this talk, Erik will introduce Solr, and dive right into building a full featured search/find application. We’ll explore the plethora of ways to get data into Solr, including database (via JDBC), RSS/Atom/arbitraryML feeds, CSV, rich text (Word, PDF, HTML, etc) documents, native APIs, and more. And we’ll end with full featured search/find application, complete with faceted navigation, query term highlighting, dynamic clustering, spell checking, and more-like-this capabilities.
