Product Description

In Detail

Content and data searching is a very important part of the modern user experience, and before something can be searched, it has to be indexed. Indexing is a hidden part of the process that has a surprisingly strong impact on the overall user experience. From speed, to faceting, to multilingual support, everything depends on correct indexing.

Instant Apache Solr for Indexing Data How-to is an example-driven guide that will take you on a journey from the basic collection of data to a multi-lingual, multi-field, multi-type schema. By the end of the book, you will know how to get your data ready for searches and how to tune the process to achieve the required search use-cases.

Instant Apache Solr for Indexing Data How-to is a friendly, practical guide that will show you how to index your data with Solr. This book will explain how Solr’s basic blocks actually work and fit together. You will then explore additional settings, pipelines, and configuration changes to achieve ever more complex goals. You will then cover how to push data into Solr and when to get Solr to pull the data. You will then master indexing textual and binary context before enabling multilingual content to be searched.


Filled with practical, step-by-step instructions and clear explanations for the most important and useful tasks. This book is written in a friendly, practical manner with recipes covering important indexing techniques and methods using Apache Solr.

Who this book is for

This book is for developers who want to dive deeper into Solr. Regardless of whether you are just starting with Solr or have already built your first collection by copying and modifying examples, this book will take you through the complicated steps of indexing your data with Solr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference to get your hands wet. 24 Dec 2013
By Al Krinker - Published on
I think first two reviewers missed the point of this book. They complained that it is too basic and most of the information can be found online. True. This book wont give you deep understanding of the SOLR or any advanced techniques, but it will do what it says it would do in the title, it is fast way to get your hands wet on SOLR Indexing. So if you never touched SOLR before this book is great, it will go into details on how to set up your local solr intance, and how to populate it with some data and would give you different ways to do it (URL, DIH, etc), etc. Not bad for only 90 pages of material

1.0 out of 5 stars Self-complaisant reminiscences of a SOLR newbie 25 Jan 2014
By eReader - Published on
Apart from few answers to perhaps tricky but absolutely pointless questions, this book is nothing different from the "Getting Started" articles (enveloped with some personal stories) already available from the Internet.
