Full Text Search with Solr

Professional full text search for installations of any size

Solr is the "server version" of Lucene.  Solr makes use of the Lucene Search Engine Library and extends it with a wide variety of functions.  REST interfaces and XML-based configurations facilitate the realisation of attractive search solutions within which the need for program code is often eliminated completely.

A few of Solr's fundamental features:

  • Fully functional search server "out of the box"
  • Simple http interface for adding documents and for the execution of searches
  • Extensive configuration options via XML
  • Comprehensive administration interface
  • Numerous functional extensions for Lucene (e.g. linguistic text analysis, faceting, caching)
  • Full support for index distribution and replication for distributed systems
Using standard web technologies, Solr offers developers a search engine that is simultaneously powerful and easy to integrate and use.  Solr's focus has been consistently on its configurability.  The numerous "out of the box" modules and open interfaces serve as comprehensive and efficient tools for the building of search solutions.

Testimonial

Andreas Jung imparted generous amounts of his enormous Zope know-how during a two-day workshop, allowing us to progress with our project in a quick and efficient manner.  He was able to answer any and all questions in detail, either during the workshop itself or in subsequent communication.  The foundations were laid for a great cooperative relationship.
