---------------------------------

             Summary: Consider adding start scripts.
                 Key: SOLR-3617
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3617
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Mark Miller


I've always found that starting Solr with java -jar start.jar is a little odd if you are not
a java guy, but I think there are bigger pros than looking less odd in shipping some start
scripts.

Not only do you get a cleaner start command:
sh solr.sh or solr.bat or something
But you also can do a couple other little nice things:
* it becomes fairly obvious for a new casual user to see how to start the system without reading
doc.
* you can make the working dir the location of the script - this lets you call the start script
from another dir and still have all the relative dir setup work.
* have an out of the box place to save startup params like -Xmx.
* we could have multiple start scripts - say solr-dev.sh that logged to the console and default
to sys default for RAM - and also solr-prod which was fully configured for logging, pegged
Xms and Xmx at some larger value (1GB?) etc.

You would still of course be able to make the java cmd directly - and that is probably what
you would do when it's time to run as a service - but these could be good starter scripts
to get people on the right track and improve the initial user experience.
