Solr can use a lucene index if the lucene code and solr's config are 
essentially identical, but it is generally VERY difficult to combine the 
two without running into problems.  It is definitely not the recommended 

Adding Solr support to an application is generally not very hard.  If 
you're already using Lucene, you may find that it is an exercise in 
removing large sections of code and replacing them with much smaller 
Solr calls.  The whole thing becomes a lot easier if you have written a 
middleware API rather than use Lucene calls directly in your app.
