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

  == Where did Solr come from? ==
  
  "Solar" (with an A) was initially developed by [[http://cnetnetworks.com|CNET Networks]]
as an in-house search platform beginning in late fall 2004.  By summer 2005, CNET's product
catalog was [[http://www.lucenebook.com/blog/announcements/2005/08/31/cnet.html|powered by
Solar]], and several other CNET applications soon followed.  In January 2006 CNET [[http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1|Granted
the existing code base to the ASF]] to become the "Solr" project.  On January 17, 2007 Solr
[[http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/lucene-general/200701.mbox/%3Cc68e39170701170707q3945a14aj5923acb0d3e1f963@mail.gmail.com%3E|graduated
from the Apache Incubator]] to become a Lucene subproject.
+ 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"
schema in that
+ you don't have to define all of your fields ahead of time, and each document you index can
have a different
+ set of fields.
