Most new Alfresco projects use Alfresco 4.0 with Solr as a search engine. This episode of Tech Talk Live is aimed at system administrators and architects who have experience using Alfresco with Lucene, but have not yet dived into what Solr is and how it works together with Alfresco 4.0.

  • What Apache Solr is
  • Why Alfresco is using it
  • What Solr cores are
  • How Solr is integrated with Alfresco
  • What the Solr Admin UI is and how to access it
  • How to turn on Solr query Logging
  • What tool to use to analyze the index
  • To understand the Solr related directory structure and files
  • Solr Core configuration
  • Solr Alfresco Schema and how to extend it
  • How to run Solr on a separate box
