The Solr module uses the Apache Solr search platform to index and crawl Magnolia content. Solr is a standalone enterprise search server with a REST like API. This integration adds outstanding search capabilities such as faceted search, near real-time indexing and multi-language support to Magnolia's rich feature set.
Solr uses the Lucene library for full-text indexing and provides faceted search, distributed search and index replication. You can use Solr to index content in an event-based or action-based fashion. Solr is highly reliable, scalable and fault tolerant, providing distributed indexing, replication and load-balanced querying, automated failover and recovery, centralized configuration and more. Solr powers the search and navigation features of many of the world's largest internet sites.
The module from version 5.0 is compatible with Solr5.3 while older versions of the module are compatible with Solr4.
