Subject Re: [Solr Wiki] Update of "SolrTomcat" by NoblePaul

: Some feedback from the user base. We build Solr from source (to include our
: site-specific customisations), and modify the web.xml before it goes into

I wouldn't categorize you as a basic user of Solr -- you know java, 
you write customizations and you build Solr from source.  You'd probably 
consider building Solr from source even if you weren't going to customize 
it.  you sir are not a "Solr User" you are a "Solr Hacker"

We have to be aware that there is a large population of Solr users that 
don't know anything about *writing* java -- nor should they.  It's enough 
that they learn about *running* java (and if they use a freindly servlet 
container, they don't even need to know that)

hence the importance of keeping information about "using solr" and 
"configuring solr" simple for non-Java speakers.
