It would be better to have systems outside of Solr manage this, make the
change in Oracle and Solr at the same time.

If you wanted to manage it from within Solr, you could write a custom
Update Processor that looks at all of the updates that come into Solr,
decides which of them require changes in Oracle, and makes those
changes.  You would then include that custom update processor in Solr. 
Most likely that would be Java code written against the solr-core API
and condensed down into a jar file.  You would then include that jar in
your classpath and reference the class in an update chain configuration.
