I am a computer geek with interest in Java, C#, and Apache Solr, business models, visualization and whatever else catches my fancy.

I wrote a book on Solr: http://bit.ly/ZPSSt4 and maintain useful Solr resources at http://www.solr-start.com/

comment How should I index a book in Solr?
If you have just plain text, how would the algorithm know what your chapters/headings are? I'd try epub first, perhaps normalizing the double quotes and other issues you hit.

comment How do I make Solr return an empty result?
You are still missing "why" you are trying to do that. And how generic this need is (just -obama? or -bush as well? what about -randomGarbageString?).

comment Solr schema for range values
Sorry, I am not sure I understand what that changes. You seem to want to index numbers. You also seem to want to search numbers ranges. The solution above does it. If you want to map particular queries to specific user name (e.g. High Age => value > 55), you can do that on a client. I think the confusion might be around "I pass age=4-12". That's not Solr syntax. Perhaps clarifying specifically the index and search values more clearly will help to understand what you want to happen.

comment Query specificly indexed value in multivalued field
This got to be pretty slow? It's bypassing all the actual reasons Lucene actually makes search fast, uses script, AND requires parsing the source field.

comment Defining nested entities in Solr Data Import Handler
You can push nested formatted documents to Solr, but they need to be in the format Solr understands: heliosearch.org/solr-4-8-features . You may also be interested in SIREn add-on to Solr: siren.solutions/siren/overview

comment What is the best way to store historical data in Solr?
Are you just storing a presence of milk? Like a binary flag? Or do you have additional information, such as number of milk bottles, etc. This affects the shape of data. Also, are your date ranges always the same (e.g. today/this week/this month) or variable each time?

comment How to query a specific document by id
You can also put the track_id:ID into the fq part. That way you don't need AND and ID is not contributing to the score/ranking calculations (a tiny bit faster).

Old knowledge. Now, Solr does allow nested documents.
