Subject Re: Embedded Solr now deprecated?
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2015 17:08:34 GMT
I just saw lots of deprecation warnings in my current code and a method
that was removed, which is why I asked.

Regarding the use case, I am embedding it with a desktop application just
as others use java-based no-sql or rdbms engines and that makes sense
architecturally in my case and is just simpler than deploying a separate
little tomcat instance. API-wise, I know it is the same and it would be
doable to do it that way. The embedded option is just the logical and
simpler choice in terms of delivery, packaging, installation, automated
testing in this case. The network option just doesn't add anything here
apart from overhead (probably negligible in our case) and complexity.

So our use is in production but in a desktop way, not what people normally
think about when they hear "production use".

Thanks everyone for the quick feedback! I am very relieved to hear it is
not on its way out and I will look at the api changes more closely and try
to get our application running on 5.2.1.

Best regards,
