Like many web applications in the past, the Solr Admin UI up until 4.0 was entirely server based. It used separate code on the server to generate their dashboards, overviews, and statistics. All that code had to be maintained and still… you weren’t really able to use that kind of data for the things you needed it for. It was wrapped into HTML, most of the time difficult to extract and they changed the structure from time to time without announcement.

During the Lucene/Solr Revolution session, “Solr’s Admin UI – Where does the data come from?,” after a short look back, Stefan Matheis, Freelance Lucene/Solr Software Engineer, will look into the current state of the Solr Admin UI – a client-side application running completely in your browser. You’ll see how it works, where it gets its data from, and how you can get the very same data and wire that into your own custom applications, dashboards, and/or monitoring systems.

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