Still running expensive queries to your database for data searches? Learn how to leverage the power of Apache Solr to perform blazing fast searches on large sets of data.
In this talk I will demonstrate how to configure Solr and interact with it by using the SolrJ API. Using the Java API directly brings some advantages over using the ColdFusion built-in tags, including the ability to integrate earlier versions of CF (pre-version 9) with Solr, more control over your search filters, indexing of different data-types and more.
