You might want to check out DataStax Enterprise, which actually integrates 
Cassandra and Solr. You keep the data in Cassandra, but as data is added and 
updated and deleted, the Solr index is automatically updated in parallel. 
You can add and update data and query using either the Cassandra API or the 
Solr API.

Subject: Getting started with solr 4.2 and cassandra

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.
