Subject How to use Solr in my project
Date Thu, 26 Dec 2013 05:24:41 GMT

First off, I apologize if this was sent twice. I was having issues subscribing to the list.

I'm a complete noob in Solr (and indexing), so I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how
to implement Solr in my project. I have gone through some tutorials online and I was able
to import and query text in some Arabic PDF documents.

We have some scans of Historical Handwritten Arabic documents that will have text extracted
into a database (or PDF). We would like the user to be able to search the document for text,
then have the scanned image show up in a viewer with the text highlighted. I would like to
use Solr to index the text in the documents, but I'm unsure how to store and get the "word
location" in Solr  (area of text that needs to be highlighted).

Do I index and store the full document in the Solr? How do l link the "search term" to the
"word location" on the page?
The only way I can figure out how to do this involves querying the database for the "word"
and "location" after querying Solr for the search term, but is that defeating the purpose
of using Solr?

I would really appreciate help figuring this out.

Thank you,
