That's a different use case than I had imagined.  Thanks for the detail.

My statement about SolrJ is correct if the code that will handle the 
response is Java.  Sounds like it's not -- you've just said that the 
code that will actually decode and use the response is javascript.

When the code that will handle the response is Java, SolrJ is a perfect 
fit, because SolrJ will handle decoding the response and the programmer 
doesn't need to worry about the format, they are given an object that 
contains the full response, where information can easily be extracted by 
someone familiar with typical Java objects.

There probably is a way to access the full response "text" with SolrJ, 
rather than the decoded object, but I do not know enough about the 
low-level details to tell you how that might be accomplished.  If you 
can figure that part out, then you could use SolrJ and have access to 
its methods for constructing the query.

With your Java code simply acting as a proxy, the way you're going about 
it might be the best option -- build the http request with a particular 
wt parameter, get the response, and pass the response on unmodified.
