Subject Re: Is Solr a good candidate to index 100s of nodes in one XML file?
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2015 20:15:29 GMT
Solr is just fine for this.

It even ships with an example of how to read an RSS file under the DIH
directory. DIH is also most likely what you will use for the first
implementation. Don't need to worry about Stax or anything, unless
your file format is very weird or has overlapping namespaces (DIH XML
parser does not care about namespaces).
