To have the admin UI, you must have a webserver for a browser to connect
to.  A servlet container (which is a webserver) is required to run Solr
in the traditional way.  If you run it embedded, you give that up.

One of the reasons given by users for running the embedded server is
that the user does not want to deal with the overhead of HTTP.  That
overhead should be fairly minimal on a LAN, especially if that LAN is
gigabit or faster.  A few milliseconds makes very little difference when
it comes to user experience.
