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 in the near future.

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