SolrStation is an administration tool for Apache's Solr search platform that runs on mobile platforms. SolrStation is not affiliated with the Apache Software Foundation.
It enables administrators to:
Currently the iPhone and Android are supported, but other platforms are in the planning stages.
Instance List Screen This is the primary entry point of the application. The table view contains a list of all Solr instances you have configured SolrStation to administer. Additional instances can be configured by way of the add button in the upper right. Instances can be removed either by swipe-deleting or by deleting them in edit mode. Selecting an instance will take you to the Instance Detail Screen for instance-level administration.
Instance Detail Screen This screen allows you to perform the data entry associated with a Solr instance as well as perform some basic management functions like optimizing indexes. It also facilitates management of the instance's replication handlers via the Replication Handler Screen and data import handlers via the Data Import Handler Screen.
Data Import Handler Screen This screen allows you to perform the data entry associated with a specific data import handler for an instance. Basic administrative tasks such as performing and aborting imports are handled as well as server configuration reloading.
Replication Handler Screen This screen allows you to perform the data entry associated with a replication handler. If the handler is detected as being a master then master specific tasks are displayed such as enabling and disabling the handler for its slaves. If the handler is detected as being a slave then slave specific tasks are presented such as performing and aborting fetches as well as the histories of successful and failed replication attempts. Note that it's possible for an instance to function both as a master and as a slave.

Solr is a highly-scalable, high-performance search platform produced by the Apache foundation. It's essentially an HTTP/REST-based service that employs Apache's Lucene library, the logical core of the search platform.
Solr services can use a number of means of transport such as XML and JSON so it's consumable by virtually any platform. It can also generate results in actual python or ruby code out of the box. Due to its modularity and open source nature it's a simple matter to extend it further to even the most obscure platforms.
Solr can natively index many data sources such as Microsoft Word documents and PDFs. The aforementioned modularity also allows it to use virtually any relational database as a data source including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL and IBM DB2.
Solr boasts an array of powerful features such as faceting, replication, distributed searching, match highlighting, caching and many many others. For a more complete list check out the official feature list.
