I am excited about the up coming ColdFusion 9 release Solr free text search - ti replaces the Verity free text search that has been in ColdFusion for over eight years. TeraTech has been using the open source Java Solr search on a project for the American Psychological Association and we have been impressed with how it efficiently handles searching millions of documents; this, of course without the extra costs that Verity requires for large search sets. We are also looking forward to being able to directly call Solr instead of doing a slow CFHTTP call to access it. ColdFusion 9 will support advanced replication and caching and also comes with a Verity to Solr migration tool.
