    Getting Solr Mongo Importer

    1. Download the latest JAR from github
    2. Build your own using the ant build script you will need the JDK installed as well as Ant and Ivy
  2. You will also need the [Mongo Java driver JAR] (

  3. Place both of these jar's in your Solr libaries folder ( I put mine in 'dist' folder with the other jar's)

  4. Add lib directives to your solrconfig.xml

    <lib path="../../dist/solr-mongo-importer-{version}.jar" />
    <lib path="../../dist/mongo.jar" />

##Usage Here is a sample data-config.xml showing the use of all components

     <dataSource name="MyMongo" type="MongoDataSource" database="Inventory" />
     <document name="Products">
         <entity processor="MongoEntityProcessor"
                 transformer="MongoMapperTransformer" >
             <field column="title"           name="title"       mongoField="Title"/>
             <field column="description"     name="description" mongoField="Long Description"/>
