Subject Getting started with solr 4.2 and cassandra
Date Mon, 01 Apr 2013 22:34:30 GMT
Hello,

I am evaluating solr 4.2 and ElasticSearch (I am new to both) for a search
API, where data sits in cassandra.

Getting started with elasticsearch is pretty straight forward and I was
able to write an ES
"river<http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/reference/river/>"
which pulls data from cassandra and indexes it in ES within a day.

Now, I trying to implement something similar with solr and compare both of
them.

Getting started with
solr/example<http://lucene.apache.org/solr/4_2_0/tutorial.html>was
pretty easy and an example solr instance works. But the example folder
contains whole bunch of stuff which I am not sure if I need:
http://pastebin.com/Gv660mRT . I am sure I don't need 53 directories and
527 files

So my questions are:
1. How can I create a bare bone solr app up and running with minimum set of
configuration? (I will build over it when needed by taking reference from
/example)
2. What is a best practice to run solr in production? Am approach like this
jetty+nginx recommended:
http://sacharya.com/nginx-proxy-to-jetty-for-java-apps/ ?

Once I am done setting up a simple solr instance:
3. What is the general practice to import data to solr? For now, I am
writing a python script which will read data in bulk from cassandra and
throw it to solr.
