Subject Re: Solr on Tomcat
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2015 18:37:23 GMT
I think until Solr become completely standalone, it could be major task for
all folks who run Solr as war or repackage Solr war maven release to adopt
5.0 release, since they need to remove tomcat or any other  container they
have in production for running Solr.

Not to mention there will tools build for those container to support
logging and monitoring.

And possibly people will still use unsupported war release to fulfill their
needs until Solr standalone release become stable.

For our use case we repackage solr war (maven release) to include some
custom code which help us to test/debug/deploy our code easily.

Most likely for us we have to create maven war artifact from solr.war
locally and publish to our internal maven repository, so our current build
and deploy process does not break.
