Hi All, I have been working on a PHP extension for Apache Solr for quite sometime now.
I just finished testing it and I have completed the initial user level documentation of the API Version 0.9.0-beta has just been released. It already has built-in readiness for Solr 1.4 If you are using Apache Solr 1.3 or later in PHP, I would appreciate if you could check it out and give me some feedback. Thanks in advance. It is very easy to install on UNIX systems. I am still working on the build for windows. It should be available for Windows soon. http://solr.israelekpo.com/manual/en/solr.installation.php A quick list of some of the features of the API include : - Built in serialization of Solr Parameter objects. - Reuse of HTTP connections across repeated requests. - Ability to obtain input documents for possible resubmission from query responses. - Simplified interface to access server response data (SolrObject) - Ability to connect to Solr server instances secured behind HTTP Authentication and proxy servers The following components are also supported - Facets - MoreLikeThis - TermsComponent - Stats - Highlighting Solr PECL Extension Homepage http://pecl.php.net/package/solr Some examples are available here http://solr.israelekpo.com/manual/en/solr.examples.php Interim Documentation Page until refresh of official PHP documentation http://solr.israelekpo.com/manual/en/book.solr.php The C source is available here http://svn.php.net/viewvc/pecl/solr/ -- "Good Enough" is not good enough. To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift. Quality First. Measure Twice. Cut Once.
