Pros: Apache Solr provides you with a search indexer. You can store data in it. Its query speed is very very fast like say in milliseconds. You can provide results for query, while user is still typing the query. Very Suitable for real-time search requirements. It stores data in documents and you can query these document to search matched documents for as per search criteria.

Cons: Once Apache Solr was best Search Indexer, now it competitor Elastic Search is providing same features or even better than Apache Solr.

Pros: We use it solely for e-commerce and it lends itself well to those needs, with suitable filtering options to offer an Amazon-like experience for visitors wanting to 'drill' into categories, etc.

Cons: Unfortunately, it doesn't easily integrate with other tools we use, at least not in our experience. For that reason, we are considering alternatives that would perhaps be more comprehensive.

Overall: It is fine for e-commerce - no complaints there. I would like to see more enhancements to help users integrate with more third party tools, though.

Pros: It took me a little while to get up-to-speed with Solr, but only because I didn't know the terminology. This was my first look into document indexing, and I have to say I was very impressed. Documentation was an absolute must for me, but it wasn't lacking, with good examples.

Cons: Steep learning curve, but then it's not something you need to learn every day. I can't fault it other than that.

Overall: If you need document indexing, I would recommend this. But then again, I'm not in the need for anything more.

Pros: SOLR is a very flexible search engine, with a lot of feature for this specific topic. Easy to configure using a GUI.

Overall: I used it for a web crawling scenario. In this case I used it together with Apache Nutch, not a native plugin has been provided. Documentation could be more clear and complete.
