Subject How to start using Solr
Date Sun, 04 Oct 2009 15:18:45 GMT

I'm new to Solr and have been reading online about it to get started for the
past few days.

Here are a few questions that I need help getting answer to:

1) Is my understanding of how Solr works correct:
- From what I gather so far, I need to run the start.jar (which runs the
server) as a daemon on my server or dev machine and post, and get XML data
from it. (i.e treat it as a service provider).

2) If I develop an application using a frame work (whether it be PHP,
Grails, Rails, .NET), I still need to deploy two things to production: (i)
the app code, and (ii) the Solr server instance.  Am I correct about this?

3) Based on (2) above, it means that for hosting options I would either need
a dedicated server or a virtual hosting that enables me not only run a web
app in their hosted Apache, IIS, or Tomcat, but also run the
startup.jar/post.jar Solr server as a daemon. If this is correct, then can
someone point me to some hosting companies that do offer such level of

Thanks in advance,
any help is indeed appreciated,
