Subject Re: Easiest way to embed solr in a desktop application
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2015 14:44:02 GMT
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,
