Pros: It is very flexible and customize-able which makes it very easy to integrate-able with other components in the development stack.

Cons: the query language could be a bit confusing at first. If the collection is large, it often takes a long time to index the data.

If you need document indexing, Solr is a great piece of software.

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: (1) It is highly scalable
(2) It is based on a distributed model
(3) load balancing happens by default when querying
(4) Indexing is really fast

Cons: It hits a limitation as full text indexes grow beyond the amount of available memory on the servers

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.
