Subject Re: Easiest way to embed solr in a desktop application

Hi Robert,

Never used by myself but is solr-packager useful in your case?

Hi Andrea,

you are assuming correctly. It is a local, non-distributed index that is
only accessed by the containing desktop application. Do you know if there
is a possibility to run the Solr admin UI on top of an embedded instance

Thanks a lot,

Robert
