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 Adding new fields to solr after indexing with Dynamic fields
Right. if store=true, you can roundtrip and add new fields. Solr will handling reconstructing the entry, adding new fields and storing it again updated internally.

comment Solr improve Search speed
There is absolutely not enough information here. You need to reduce your test case to absolute essential and ask a more concrete question with example and identified challenge. I would also suggest that Solr User mailing list might be a better forum than here for that kind of questions.

comment Index quickly a large dataset on solr
I am not aware of any super-fresh samples of embedded SolrJ. My own example is quite out of date by now, as a lot of APIs changed since the book. In any case, I would start from commit and multi-threading changes first.

Have you tried following the Quick Start Guide ? It should get you through the most basic steps. You can see the collection gettingstarted in the examples there.

comment Not able to Search on Solr Field Type="text_general_maxlength"?
There seem to be a problem with your fieldType definition. It has analyzer, analyzer/index and analyzer/query. When you just have an analyzer (without 'type'), it is used for both index and query. So, you need to either have a combined section or two separate ones. Otherwise, the behavior is not defined.

comment Can Solr DIH create multiple documents instead of using multiValued?
This is a more generic question, but usually you want to think backwards from the results you want to display. Then you map your internal representation to make that result easier.

comment Can Solr DIH create multiple documents instead of using multiValued?
Why does multiValued field not work for you? You can still facet on it and everything. In general, yes, anything is possible, you just need the right SQL query and then DIH will map it one-to-one with the correct definition.

comment How do I deal with excessive CLOSE_WAIT which are clogging up Solr
Are your SolrCloud requests route via nginx proxy? That would seem unnecessary and - possibly - unexpected. The actual CLOSE_WAIT is not Solr issue, but an O/S issue. You could look at reducing it's length for your O/S.
