"Apache Solr isn't comprable to SQLite/DBI. It's not a RDBMS, why are you trying to make comparisons where there are none to be made?"
I don't know, perhaps because the two of them were suggested as alternative means of achieving the same end?
"DBD::SQLite can be packaged with pp."
"If you'd actually read what Solr is you wouldn't consider asking if it could be packaged. It simply doesn't make sense to do so."
There is a Solr CPAN module. I would have thought that it's reasonable to ask whether it is self-contained or requires that solr be installed separately, and whether it can be packaged or it has un-packable dependencies. I guess that using Solr would mean that every user needs to install Lucene/Solr.
"Would every user need to install sqlite or other software separately? - No"
I guess that only applies to DBD::SQLite then.
If you are annoyed about beginner questions in a thread that explicitly states that it is about beginner questions and feeling around for possible options/feasibility, there is nothing wrong with just not posting in it. If you decide to try and help, there is no reason to get irritated.
