Step 10. Integrating Solr

Step 10. Integrating Solr

This is step 10 of performing a full installation of Enterprise Server 9. (See a list of all steps)

What is Solr?

Solr is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library. Some of its features include:

  • Hit highlighting
  • Faceted search
  • Caching
  • Replication
  • A Web administration interface

How is Solr run?

Solr runs in a Java servlet container such as Tomcat or Jetty (included in the Solr distribution download).

Which version of Solr should be used with Enterprise Server?

Enterprise Server 9.2 and higher requires Solr 4.5.1 or higher to be installed (for exact compatibility information, see the Compatibility Matrix). Enterprise Server 9 ships with a separate Solr package that has been updated to Solr 4.5 standards.

Note: Enterprise Server 9.0 and 9.1 use Solr 3.6.

Language support

For most supported languages, the schema.xml and solrconfig.xml files are located in the root folder of the Solr package. For Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages, the schema.xml and solrconfig.xml files of the “CJK" subfolder should be used instead.

Solr requirements

  • Java 1.6 or greater installed
  • A servlet container such as Tomcat, Jetty, or Resin

Note: We assume that you have Java 1.6 or greater installed and that Solr 4.5.1 or higher is used. Furthermore, we focus on installing Solr in the Tomcat servlet container. (There are several alternative ways for getting Solr up and running.)

Steps to follow

At high-level, the integration of Solr in Enterprise Server consists of the following steps (listed in the order in which they should be carried out):
