Subject Re: Solr: using to index large folders recursively containing lots of different documents, and querying over the web
Date Fri, 14 Jan 2011 12:54:09 GMT
Nutch can crawl the file system as well. Nutch 1.x can also provide search but 
this is delegated to Solr in Nutch 2.x. Solr can provide the search and Nutch 
can provide Solr with content from your intranet.
