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 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.

This is a new question, I recommend you post is separately with the simplest example. Either here or on the mailing list.

comment Intermediate Service between client and SOLR search
Depends on the logic. If it's inside Solr, you don't have to reconstruct documents to send to clients. Filters are pretty good to be inside Solr, especially with recent post-filter improvements. So, it's more efficient. But if you are doing some super-complex processing, it might be easier logically on the client. No single answer.

comment cursorMark is stateless and how it solves deep paging
You have the documentation to explain the usage. If you want to understand the implementation, the source is always available. The depth of your question is best answered by consulting that directly.

comment How much time does the cursorMark is available on solr server
I don't believe so. It just skips until the CursorMark's internal position and then continues from there. Like a specialized filter.
