Subject Re: how to use ajax-solr - example?
Date Sun, 13 Dec 2009 05:46:43 GMT

It seems the OP has found what he wanted, but just to clarify and update:

The AJAX Solr documentation has been massively expanded, and a demo site has
been created:


AJAX Solr is JavaScript framework-agnostic. If you prefer Prototype, use
Prototype. The documentation, however, is written in jQuery, as it is the
most popular framework.

Counter what Israel said, sending data only between JavaScript and Solr will
*not* limit you to one domain. In the demo site, for example, the HTML/JS is
on one domain and Solr is on another domain.
