Online Training for Solr

In partnership with Pluralsight, Search Technologies is pleased to present Getting Started with Enterprise Search using Apache Solr.



  • This three and a half hour online training course is aimed at programmers looking to gain a solid understanding of enterprise search systems
  • The course uses Apache Solr, the leading open source search engine to illustrate all of the key aspects for building an enterprise search system, using real-world examples derived from Search Technologies' customer projects


Everyone uses search on a daily basis, so we all feel that we are familiar with it. Yet, search is one of the most misunderstood applications within the IT industry. Underneath the simple mechanism of entering a few words into a search box, and receiving relevancy ranked results in return, there is a lot going on.


This course takes the student through all of the key aspects that need to be understood to build a successful enterprise search system, including:

  • A review of the need for enterprise search, its history, key features and functions
  • The architecture of search applications
  • Implementing and configuring Solr
  • Indexing documents, and creating schemas for metadata to drive important functions such as search navigation and results sorting
  • Search user interface functionality, and relevancy tuning

This training course can be accessed via the Pluralsight website.
