Setting up CouchDB-Lucene is quite easy, but you don't want that i guess. You could construct
a show function to convert input to Solr accepted XML, should be very straightforward. You
just need some program to fetch from CouchDB and push it in Solr.

Hey Brendan!

Thanks for your response.

Actually I'm looking for the other way around. I'm trying to get Solr to 
index my CouchDB. CouchDB works with a REST API and returns plaintext JSON.
So I'm looking to get JSON into Solr and not out of :)

On the CouchDB wiki I've found a reference to a project "CouchDB Solr2" 
which seemed to do exactly what I'm trying to do (full text indexing and 
searching with CouchDB), but it is no longer maintained as of January 
2009 and cannot be found anymore on github. Maybe it's because there is 
now a simple way to do it in Solr and I just haven't found it yet ;)
