Getting Started with Apache Solr

Step-I :
download solr-4.7.2.zip from its official site http://lucene.apache.org/solr/

Step-II :
extract it on your desired location. 
In my case its location is /Desktop/poc/solr-4.7.2.zip.

Apache Solr comes with running examples. i.e. In its working directory there is a folder named as example. Just go into that there you see a jar start.jar.

Step-III :
Use java -jar start.jar from your command line, it starts jetty server and this inbuild example becomes working. 
To check it is working or not just hit http://localhost:8983/solr/ and you can see its Dashboard screen
Congrats Your fist step is completed.
