Subject Re: Getting started with solr 4.2 and cassandra

Hi,

Solr doesn't have anything like ES River.  DIH (DataImportHandler)
feels like the closest thing in Solr, though it's not quite the same
thing.  DIH pulls in data like a typical River does, but most people
have external indexers that push data into Solr using one of its
client libraries to talk to Solr, such as SolrJ.
