This guide is intended for search application developers and administrators who want to use the LucidWorks Platform to create world class search applications for their websites.
While the LucidWorks Platform is built on Solr, and many of its features are implementations of Solr and Lucene features, this Guide does not cover basic Solr or Lucene configuration. We do, however, point out where the LucidWorks Platform, and LucidWorks Enterprise or LucidWorks Cloud specifically, deviates from Solr or Lucene standard configuration practices, and have provided links to Solr and Lucene documentation where possible for further explanation if the functionality in the LucidWorks Platform is identical to Solr or Lucene. One important note to remember is that LucidWorks is multi-core enabled by default, with collection1 as the default core. This means that standard Solr paths such as http://localhost:port/solr/*, as shown in Solr documentation, would be http://localhost:port/solr/collection1/* in LucidWorks Enterprise or LucidWorks Cloud.
Special notes are included throughout these pages.
