I have never used Solr and I don't know what advantages does it offer
over "pure" lucene. But couchdb-lucene is not "pure" lucene. It's a
tool written specifically for couchdb. You write search views that are
almost the same like couchdb views. If you use couchdbkit (don't know
for others), it supports couchdb-lucene so it doesn't matter if you
call couchdb view or lucene view from your code (the API is the same).
I don't know java and couchdb-lucene is perfectly usable as it is
accessed via javascript views.
Of course, if you are a java expert, you may be comfortable with
implementing your own solution, though I don't believe it will be
easier than couchdb-lucene.
