Subject Re: solr query result not read the latest xml file
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 13:45:45 GMT

Beware that post.jar is just an example tool to play with the default example index located
at /solr/ namespace. It is very limited and you shold look elsewhere for a more production
ready and robust tool.

However, it has the ability to specify custom url. Please try:

java -jar post.jar -help

Thus for your index, try:
java -Durl=http://localhost:80/search/update -jar post.jar myfile.xml
