NEW YORK - June 17, 2014 - PRLog -- inKstall is pleased to announce the publication of its first book —Mastering Apache Solr (http://inkstall.com/index.php/home/new-title), a practical hands-on guide to get to grips with Apache Solr. Written by Mathieu Nayrolles (http://mathieu-nayrolles.com/), this book covers key technical concepts, highlighting Solr's supremacy over classical databases in open-source full-text search world, and helps readers make definite advancements in the Solr world.

Solr (http://lucene.apache.org/solr/) is an open source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source) enterprise search (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise_search) platform from the Apache Lucene (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucene) project. Its major features include full-text search (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_text_search), hit highlighting, faceted search (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faceted_search), dynamic clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling. Solr is also highly scalable as it provides distributed search and index replication.

Mastering Apache Solr (http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-Apache-Solr-practical-gui...) starts with an introduction to Apache Solr, its underlying technologies, followed by the main differences between the classical database engines, and gradually moves to more advance topics like boosting performance. It enables readers to index and access documents orders of magnitude faster than classical databases and a lot more. This guide will empower you to provide a world-class search experience to your end users.

This book will not only look under the hood of a large number of topics and discuss answers to pertinent questions like why denormalize data, how to import classical databases' data inside Apache Solr, how to serve Solr through five different web servers, how to optimize them to serve Solr even faster, but also explain Solr's querying mechanism. Furthermore, this guide will also cover boosting performance and deploying Solr using several servlet servers.

This book covers the following key topics:
