Subject Re: SolrCore as Singleton?
Date Fri, 08 Sep 2006 05:46:19 GMT

: I am currently in the startup phase of my thesis regarding open source
: and enterprise search. After having worked at perhaps the leading major
: enterprise search company, I have the impression that multiple
: collections is a very common feature (and very sought-after). It is a
: trend I see not just directly from my work, but most certainly also as a
: result of enterprise search solutions becoming more common in general.

SolrCore being a singleton doesn't prevent you from having multiple
collections per JVM -- you just need to run multiple instances of the
webapp within a single servlet container using JNDI to specify the
seperate solr.home directories, specifics for doing this in Tomcat are on
the wiki...

: Until this framework is available with its appropriate configuration
: files, administrator interface and so on in place, it seems a bit
: unnatural to support multiple collections from the same application
: instance.
:
: Bottom line (for now): I think that users looking for enterprise search
: solutions must have a simple way of creating multiple collections from
: within the same application.

Well it's pretty easy right now to make a new collection -- it's
just two new files (solrconfig.xml and schema.xml)
