Subject Re: Spatial filter in solr 4.0 - "Intersects" operation with parameters
Date Thu, 27 Dec 2012 02:39:26 GMT
It's unusual to have Solr be the first point of entry into a service. 
Usually it's fronted with a web application that has the business logic that
knows how to map the request to the search back-end.

Given your further questions, almost anything could work without much
* A standard servlet filter
* A search component
* A subclass of SearchHandler

The search component would probably be easy and most appropriate as you
could register it clearly in solr's config file vs. semi-hidden in web.xml
