Subject [WEBINAR] - "Lucene/Solr 4 – A Revolution in Enterprise Search Technology"
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 01:23:41 GMT
Excuse the blatant marketing, though for the benefit of the community...


Join me tomorrow/today (March 27) for a webinar on what's new and improved in Lucene and Solr

It's the last call to register.   Help me break the webinar system by overloading it for the
presentation!  (and it'll be recorded and shared afterwards with those that registered)


------ [official description]

Lucene/Solr 4 is a ground breaking shift from previous releases. Solr 4.0 dramatically improves
scalability, performance, reliability, and flexibility. Lucene 4 has been extensively upgraded.
It now supports  near real-time (NRT) capabilities that allow indexed documents to be rapidly
visible and searchable. Additional Lucene improvements include pluggable scoring, much faster
fuzzy and wildcard querying, and vastly improved memory usage. 

The improvements in Lucene have automatically made Solr 4 substantially better. But Solr has
also been considerably improved and magnifies these advances with a suite of new “SolrCloud”
features that radically improve scalability and reliability. 

In this Webinar, you will learn:
  * What are the Key Feature Enhancements of Lucene/Solr 4, including the new distributed
capabilities of SolrCloud
  * How to Use the Improved Administrative User Interface
  * How Sharding has been improved
  * What are the improvements to GeoSpatial Searches, Highlighting, Advanced Query Parsers,
Distributed search support, Dynamic core management, Performance statistics, and searches
for rare values, such as Primary Key
