Welcome to the Apache Solr project!

Apache Solr is a search server based on the Apache Lucene search

For a complete description of the Solr project, team composition, source
code repositories, and other details, please see the Solr web site at

Getting Started

See the "example" directory for an example Solr setup.  A tutorial
using the example setup can be found in "docs/tutorial.html" 

Files Included In Apache Solr Distributions

  The Apache Solr Application.  Deploy this WAR file to any servlet
  container to run Apache Solr.

  The Apache Solr Libraries.  This JAR file is needed to compile
  Apache Solr Plugins (see for
  more information).

  A self-contained example Solr instance, complete with a sample
  configuration, documents to index, and the Jetty Servlet container.
  Please see example/README.txt for information about running this

  The contents of the Apache Solr website.
  The Apache Solr Javadoc API documentation.

  The Apache Solr source code.

Instructions for Building Apache Solr from Source

1. Download the J2SE 5.0 JDK (Java Development Kit) or later from
   You will need the JDK installed, and the %JAVA_HOME%\bin directory included
   on your command path.  To test this, issue a "java -version" command from your
   shell and verify that the Java version is 5.0 or later.

2. Download the Apache Ant binary distribution from
   You will need Ant installed and the %ANT_HOME%\bin directory included on your
   command path.  To test this, issue a "ant -version" command from your
   shell and verify that Ant is available.

3. Download the Apache Solr distribution, linked from the above 
   web site.  Expand the distribution to a folder of your choice, e.g. c:\solr.   
   Alternately, you can obtain a copy of the latest Apache Solr source code
   directly from the Subversion repository:

4. Navigate to that folder and issue an "ant" command to see the available options
   for building, testing, and packaging Solr.
   To see Solr in action, you may want to use the "ant example" command to build
   and package Solr into the example/webapps directory. See also example/README.txt.

Export control
This distribution includes cryptographic software.  The country in
which you currently reside may have restrictions on the import,
