Lucid Imagination and the Northern Virginia Java User’s Group (NOVAJUG) are sponsoring this month’s NOVA Apache Lucene/Solr meetup. Location: Reston, VA Time and Date: 16 December, 2009, at 6:30pm Eastern. Featured speaker: Erik Hatcher
Solr powers search for a broad range of enterprise applications and high profile websites. Erik will introduce Solr and show how to build a full featured application, and explore the plethora of ways to get data into Solr, including database (via JDBC), RSS/Atom/arbitraryML feeds, CSV, rich text (Word, PDF, HTML, etc) documents, native APIs, and more. And we’ll end with full featured search/find application, complete with faceted navigation, query term highlighting, dynamic clustering, spell checking, and more-like-this capabilities.
