Solr JDBC - SQuirreL SQL

2020-01-12

For SQuirreL SQL, you will need to create a new driver for Solr. This will add several SolrJ client .jars to the SQuirreL SQL classpath. The files required are:

  • all .jars found in $SOLR_HOME/dist/solrj-libs

  • the SolrJ .jar found at $SOLR_HOME/dist/solr-solrj-<version>.jar

Once the driver has been created, you can create a connection to Solr with the connection string format outlined in the generic section and use the editor to issue queries.
