“Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, near real-time indexing, dynamic clustering, database integration, rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling, and geospatial search. Solr is highly reliable, scalable and fault tolerant, providing distributed indexing, replication and load-balanced querying, automated failover and recovery, centralized configuration and more. Solr powers the search and navigation features of many of the world’s largest internet sites.”
Kudos to my teammate Marco Balderas, who was able to integrate Apache Solr under IBM WebSphere Application Server v8.0, if you want to know how he did that, please check the series in the the Base22.com public knowledge wiki.
