Subject Re: Endeca vs Solr?
Date Thu, 20 May 2010 22:31:54 GMT

Hello kkieser.  
I've used both and my name may of come up in your searches.  For your
system, I would definitely not use Endeca as its too complicated for the
relatively simple needs that you have.  You asked if there are technical
differences and of course being two different systems, the answer is yes --
but both can fit your needs.

I'm not quite convinced that either would be worthwhile for what you
describe over something more home-grown with a database.  I could see you
re-using Lucene's analysis package to tokenize and the process each token
against and match against a hashtable.  By the way, Solr is going to use a
Hashtable as well on either index or query time to handle synonyms.  Your
scenario does not suggest that this list would be so large to be concerning. 
Of course if you want other features in Solr like highlighting and faceting
and the other goodies, then its clearly worthwhile.
