Major Feature #38421
Solarium instead of SolrPhpClient
|Priority:||Should have||Due date:|
|TYPO3 Version:||Has patch:|
The currently used library SolrPhpClient is outdated and seems to be badly maintained: last update was "in May 2011".
That results in the lack of new Solr features; eg. the lib does not support grouping of results.
Apache Solr recommends to use "Solarium", which s actively mantained, features samples for all methods and offers more functionality than SolrPhpClient.
"Solarium is a Solr client library for PHP applications that not only facilitates Solr communication but also tries to accurately model Solr concepts."
For more details please see:
Thus I'd request to change from SolrPhpClient to Solarium.

SolrPhpClient works well. Features Solarium implements in its library are already implement in the solr extension. Grouping is be possible with SolrPhpClient, too.
Changing the library would just be too much work with too less gain...
