I'm trying to understand the SolR add on to SpringRoo. I think I understand that it provides search functionality for new records added through the SpringRoo app. However that isn't what I need.
I have a tonne of data which is created outside of the SpringRoo app and I want to be able to display it in my SpringRoo app and search for it through SolR. It seems to me that I would create my own SolR indexes myself, and presumably point SpringRoo to my existing database.
Is this a sensible thing to expect the SolR add on to do?
Any extra tutorials or examples I should be reading? (apart from the main documentation which I think I have read)
