So you want to upload configuration files Solr can use to properly function and make your application a screaming success.
The cat is happy to hear this. There is nothing the cat likes more than to put Continue reading
This will be a short one. At least the cat hopes so.
The question of how to change a date from something like 2020-04-01 into something less foolish (like 2020-04) came up recently and I couldn’t help but feel the pull of a simplistic solution (simple as well, but simplistic was the draw). This is something that is applicable to numerous scenarios where a string and its composite parts might be better off being rearranged (kind of like kaleidoscope without all the colors).
Yes, my example is going to be trivial.
No, the cat is not happy with that.
Yes, I am doing it anyway.
With the advent of Solr 6.5 we have (drum roll, please) multi-term synonym support! Yes! Do that happy dance, but remember not to scuff up the floor too much.
Let’s run through a trivial example to show it off. Continue reading

Answer: This assumes the existence of a Solr collection with metadata and that Fusion knows of its existence (that means either use the default Solr cluster that runs within Fusion or make sure that the external Solr cluster you are using is registered with Fusion).
The basic steps:
So how do you configure the Database connector to connect and crawl a SQL Server 2008 R2 database? I’m glad you asked. We can do this the easy way or the hard way. I always opt for the easy way even if it is harder.
So I will safely assume that you have read the post on crawling your local file system because you downloaded LWS and couldn’t contain yourself. You are now beside yourself with excitement that you can’t wait to try crawling the web. The cat is beside me and excited is not what I feel. Let’s start at Continue reading
As I mentioned in the previous post: SolrXML isn’t just for sending documents into Solr. It is also for sending messages to Solr about things you would like it to do: add one or more documents, update one or more documents or delete one or more documents (there are a few other messages you can send, but why quibble over details).
Let’s look at these in turn.
If you want to follow along then do the following Continue reading
