Abstract (Document Summary)

With more than 100 vendors offering commercial enterprise search solutions, there are myriad approaches, options, and systems from which to choose. Open source search also plays an increasingly important part in commercial search and enterprise software solutions. Providing a single point of access to Lucene Solr is an opportunity.
