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 on which port does solr works on
Which version of Solr? The standard installation is with Jetty, Tomcat is not a standard installation and is not supported starting from Solr 5.

comment Is there a way fire select query on solr using xml request?
This kind of question you should have been able to answer yourself by looking at the Solr Reference Guide documentation. So, it is not relevant. But quickly, there is no XML way, but there will be a JSON way starting from Solr 5.1. Perhaps not for everything, but for many of the parameters.

comment Solr on Websphere 8.5.5 : Linkage Error with org.slf4j.LoggerFactory
Starting from Solr 5, configurations other than built-in Jetty are not supported. Something to keep in mind before you get really locked into WAS.

I think they should be fine, yes.

comment Force Solr not to use _version_ field during search
It is needed with your current configuration, look for df field definition in your solrconfig.xml. Solr gives you a lot of flexibility in how you search, currently you are using the simplest option of everything meshed together into one field for search. Eventually, you will want to migrate from that to something like eDismax. Read the tutorials/Reference Guide for more information on that.

comment Solr + Eclipse + Jetty + custom jsp
Please use separate questions for different issues. This way, they would be useful for other people. I would also recommend going through Solr tutorials and maybe books. It would be more efficient than asking a bunch of very basic questions randomly.

comment Store historical attributes in one SOLR document
You should not use Solr as the primary database. It is designed and optimized for search. While it is very reliable, the correct architecture will still store the primary data somewhere else. You do have other options with avoid data duplication in Solr, including parent/children entities, external value fields, etc. But all have even more complicated trade-offs. It might be best to build a prototype first and experiment with impact on your specific data.

comment Solr: Using DataImportHandler for XML import with XSLT processing
Double check it is dataSource in the outer entity. Also, the second entity says "datasource" not dataSource, but DIH is case-sensitive. Finally, the second entity dataSource is not a name of the first entity. It should actually be the name of that data source you actually defined at the top. Except you didn't give it a name. So, either give your data source a name and use that in the reference or - since you only have one data source - remove the reference from the second entity all together. And you do need to nest the entities, otherwise they create separate documents.

Are you going to be searching through that historical data? If not, it should not be in Solr.
