First of all, *I* wouldn't really want to be caught coding up any  
kind of client or server SOAP call to Solr.  Seems mostly ridiculous  
to me when Solr's response is malleable to practically any kind of  
hash/array data structure format you want already.

But no, I wouldn't build a request handler for SOAPifying Solr, I  
don't think.  I'd go as simple as possible and use the Axis web stuff  
(last time I did this stuff was ages ago, caveat) and talk to Solr's  
API - which could be a call to a request handler internally.

No.  SolrJ is for Java -> Solr communications, and it does just fine  
with out any SOAP in there at all.  In fact, the latest incarnations  
do this with serialized Java objects of some sort making the data  
smaller and faster to process than XML.

Only on the server-side, if you're a masochist.  Otherwise, just use  
Solr without SOAP and do something else with your free time :)
