Ah. Ok. I'll look into that.

Do I need to set up multiple cores to use an embedded server? I don't mind
doing this just trying to get the facts straight.

Again, I was using the first example on the wiki page:

The example doesn't specify a core name, or the use of solr.xml, it simply
sets 'solr.solr.home' as a system property and then initializes the embedded

Doing this doesn't seem to work when I point 'solr.solr.home' at the
example/solr directory. The data I had previously posted to the standalone
server was no longer present.

know that I will use more URL friendly core names.
