I'm thinking about upgrading the solr install included with ColdFusion 9 to the latest Apache release. This raises a few questions:
- Is there a compelling reason not to upgrade to 3.6 (is it slower than, more cumbersome than, or backwards-incompatible with 1.4) altogether?
- The solr install included with CF9 is customized. Is there a way to customize it myself, or to at least fool CF into treating it like its predecessor?
- Will all of my existing indexes work as-is (are?) with the new version?
- Has anyone out there on ServerFault done the upgrade? I'm especially interested in hearing about unforeseen or unexpected effects from the upgrade.
