You need to deploy solr-web plugin for Liferay to use Solr as it's search engine.

Hi Vamshi,

Were you able to find a solution to your problem?
I'm also trying to display content indexed by nutch using Liferay's search portlet.

Unable to find any links on this...

is there a solution for this problem??
i have the exact same problem now! Liferay+Solr runs fine, Solr+Nutch without Liferay also runs fine! But all three together?? Is that possible? In my oppinion the problem is the schema.xml file, the one from solr-web plugin is different, uses uid instead of url as unique key.

If this combination is not possible....is it possible to use another crawler? Or is it possible to use a Google Search Appliance with liferay's search-portlet?
Please help emoticon

so the Liferay + Solr setup is meant for the portal's internal indexes and searching capability. we generally recommend having a separate Solr/Nutch server (with a schema.xml that you can customize to your needs) if you want to allow a crawler to give you page searching feature.

With that said, there isn't a plugin that's available (AFAIK) for searching the nutch indexes at this point. But, an easy thing you can do is to configure Solr to return JSON, then write a simple portlet using JavaScript/AJAX to provide your search results from Solr+Nutch.
