ApacheCon US 2008 Session

Solr Boot Camp

Solr has emerged as THE way to add search services to applications written in any language. Lucene powers Solr's lightweight HTTP web services. This all-day tutorial will begin with a Solr overview, and move through installation and configuration. The bulk of session will be spent diving deeply into integrating Solr with various technologies. Solr features caching, replication support for load balancing, faceting, highlighting, more-like-this, simple HTTP protocol supporting XML, JSON, and other formats. Erik will discuss his Solr experiences on the applications he has built with it.
