Subject [SOLVED] [MORE OR LESS] "no such core" error with EmbeddedSolrServer
Date Sat, 07 Jan 2012 06:33:27 GMT
OK, this is working now.  There were a couple of things going on, but
the net-net was "classloading issues."
The initial "no such core" problem was happening because the cores
weren't initializing properly due
to a NoClassDefFoundError.   But after fixing that, I wound up with a
pile of ClassCastExceptions... the kind
you get when there are Classloader conflicts...  I'd seen this kind of
thing before when using Groovy (possibly
because it does extra classloading trickery under the covers?) so I
ported the program to plain old Java
and it works fine.

No biggie... at this point, I've basiclaly decided I'm going to run
Solr as a separate process anyway, and use
the http based SolrJ client for integration, and that works fine even
in the Groovy code.

Thanks for all the help, tips and pointers!  I've learned a lot about
Solr in the past day or two.  :-)
