  "Solar" (with an A) was initially developed by [[|CNET Networks]]

catalog was [[|powered by
Solar]], and several other CNET applications soon followed.  In January 2006 CNET [[|Granted
the existing code base to the ASF]] to become the "Solr" project.  On January 17, 2007 Solr

+ In March 2010, The Solr and Lucene-java subprojects merged into a single project.
  == Is Solr Stable? Is it "Production Quality?" ==
  Solr is currently being used to power search applications on several [[PublicServers|high
traffic publicly accessible websites]].
+ == Is Solr Schema-less ==
+ Yes, in the ways that count.  Solr does have a schema to define types, but it's a "free"

have a different
+ set of fields.
