The juris portal provides access to legal information (about 6.5 mil documents) and information about German companies (about 23 mil documents). Access is highly personalized:  search, links, and search suggestions are customized according to the documents contained in a user’s product collection. There are many search options, the system stability and reliability have to be high and there are DVD versions of subsets of the complete collection.

The Lucene/Solr Revolution session, “Moving a Complex Application from Using Verity and Oracle to Using Solr,” by Christine Rüb, Senior Project Manager at Juris, describes how the juris portal moved from using Verity and Oracle to using Solr, which decisions they made, which architecture they chose, how they handle indexing, and what results they achieved in areas like performance, hardware resources, and stability.

This introductory level session will take place from 1:55-2:40 on Thursday, November 7. Click here for more details.
