SOLR

Im really jazzed to go get the recent release of SOLR and try it out. I attended the talk on it (completely packed room) today and I’m fully convinced on the functionality. I really want to stress it a bit now and see how it holds up. The default distro comes with a jetty servlet container, and most intriguing was the ability to request JSON packaged results – I’m thinking of Ajax style search with this critter. The notes from the talk are due to be posted on http://webdevradio.com/ in the near future.

I’ll be heading into the talk on hadoop when I get back there shortly.
