I am happy to announce that AEM Solr Search is finally out in Beta! Visit http://www.aemsolrsearch.com/ and start integrating AEM with Apache Solr. Watch the video for a quick preview on building a rapid front-end search experience, then jump into the Getting Started guide and experiment with the Geometrixx Media Sample application.
For readers who have read my previous posts, the aemsolrsearch-geometrixx-media-sample Maven sub module provides a reference implementation for integrating AEM (CQ) and Solr using the eventing pattern and the Solr JSON update handler pattern.
Stay tuned for upcoming posts on all the AEM / Solr patterns that I will be presenting at adaptTo() 2014.
