This book is for developers who are building or planning to build an enterprise search engine using Apache Solr. Chapters 1 and 3 can be read by anyone who intends to learn the basics of information retrieval, search engines, and Apache Solr specifically. Chapter 2 kick-starts development with Solr and will prove to be a great resource for Solr newbies and administrators. All other chapters explore the Solr features and approaches for developing a practical and effective search engine.
This book covers use cases and examples from various domains such as e-commerce, legal, medical, and music, which will help you understand the need for certain features and how to approach the solution. While discussing the features, the book generally provides a snapshot of the required configuration, the command (using curl) to execute the feature, and a code snippet as required. The book dives into implementation details and writing plug-ins for integrating custom features.
What this book doesn't cover is performance improvement in Solr and optimizing it for high-speed indexing. This book covers Solr features through release 5.3.1, which is the latest at the time of this writing.
Who This Book Is For
This book expects you to have basic understanding of the Java programming language, which is essential if you want to execute the custom components.
