Subject RE: "Solr 1.4 Enterprise Search Server" book examples
Date Sat, 22 May 2010 04:29:27 GMT

Hello Rob, 
Thank you for buying the book.  I'm the lead author.  There is a README.txt
file in the root of the zip which includes a rather full invocation of java
to kick off Solr that is to be used for the example data.  The options as
part of the invocation should elucidate what's going on.  The layout of
where Solr's home is in relation to where Jetty is does not coincide with a
standard Solr distribution's "example" directory.  In hind-site, I should
have made it the same so as not to confuse people.  Sorry.

And I have no idea why the download got corrupted on Packt's server.  I made
a smaller distribution for them (~127MB vs 300-something) and put the data
files on MusicBrainz' servers which are downloaded as part of the setup
script you should run.
