Hi Michael,

    What Solr is really doing is building a Lucene index.  In most cases a 
Java developer should be able to access the index that Solr built through 
the IndexReader/IndexSearcher classes and the location of the index that 
Solr built.  See the Lucene API for details on these and other classes. 
The default index location is in solr/data/index relative to where you 
start the servlet which is running Solr.

Hope you find that helpful,
