Do you require a search and suggest engine that could scale up catering to millions of records? In this session, I shall render my past project experience of using Solr as a search engine delimiting what could you really expect out of Solr.
This case study shall focus on the following points:
- Why choose Solr as your search engine : What lured us to go for Solr
- Solr offers various configurations and components to build a Google style Suggestions engine – Elicit pros and limiting factors of these components and highlight when to use which component.
- Fuzzy Searching with Solr – I want to search ‘Karan’ but I type ‘Naran’ yet Solr finds it. – Analyse what fuzzy searching can do for you and to what extent should you stretch your engine’s fuzzy search quotient.
- Discuss Solr scaling topology – Point out what factors should you consider while scaling Solr
- Unit testing Solr code
