Subject Re: Upgrading from 4.x to 5.x
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2015 12:55:17 GMT

You could try this

Instead of example/, use the server/ folder (it has Jetty in it)
Start Solr using bin/solr start script instead of java -jar start.jar …
Leave your solrconfig and schema as is to keep back-compat with 4.x.
You may need to remove use of 3.x classes that were deprecated in 4.x

right direction?
