I was able to easily find requirements on versions back to Solr 1.1 -
which requires Java 1.5.

Java 1.3 was released in 2000, 1.4 in 2002, and 1.5 in 2004.  Solr was
initially created in 2004, and was open sourced in 2006, so I would
expect that all the early publicly available Solr versions required Java

I don't think you'll be able to use *any* version of SolrJ with a 1.3
JVM.  It may even be difficult to find compatible HTTP and XML libraries
to roll your own client like Hoss advised.  That Java version is *OLD*.
