JISC CRIG DRY / IEDemonstrator BarCamp - Testing the Z3950/SOLR Bridge

The JZKit to SOLR Z3950 bridge has had it's first real foray outside of internal k-int projects by providing a z39.50 server to cross search Intute and the Oxford University Research Archive in a single z39.50 search. Been itching to try this for absolutely ages, and the CRIG/DRYbarcamp was the perfect opportunity to talk to the projects and quickly hack out the config needed to set up the server.

Here's the proof of the pudding, a z39.50 search for title=science translated into solr searches against the two repositories and integrated into a single interleaved result set. Easily integrated into any meta-search engine implementing z39.50. Cool!
