Subject Re: Extending XmlRequestHandler

Thanks for the comments. But they raised some doubts in my mind.

What I need to do is to integrate Solr to an environment that communicates
via wsdl/SOAP. There will be lots of web services communicating to Solr.
Solr will be used like a web service, so I need to make possible for the
other side to send a wsdl based message to my web service, and my service to
communicate with Solr.

Expected message volume is 60.000 messages per hour, peaks of 100.000
messages per hour. And it will scale in months. That's why I am trying to
figure the most performance wise way to things.

I understood what you said about putting the SOAP at Solr. I agree. That's
not smart.
Now, I am thinking about the web service talking with an embedded Solr
Is that you were talking about?
