In Detail

Solr is a widely popular open source enterprise search server that delivers powerful search and faceted navigation features—features that are elusive with databases. Solr supports complex search criteria, faceting, result highlighting, query-completion, query spell-checking, relevancy tuning, geospatial searches, and much more.

This book is a comprehensive resource for just about everything Solr has to offer, and it will take you from first exposure to development and deployment in no time. Even if you wish to use Solr 5, you should find the information to be just as applicable due to Solr's high regard for backward compatibility. The book includes some useful information specific to Solr 5.
