Error: Solr Integration with AEM 6.4

Level 2
Level 2

I'm not able to integrate Solr 7.5 with AEM 6.4,

getting the following error:

Solr Package Error.PNG

I have tried with almost every version of Solr, but I am getting the same error again and again!

I am simply following this tutorial:

Adobe Experience Manager Help | Integrating SOLR with Adobe Experience Manager

But, in this tutorial, apache.felix.scr.annotations are used. I am just replacing these annotations with osgi annotations.

Here is the new article with R6 annotations working - along with a video.

Adobe Experience Manager Help | Integrating SOLR with Adobe Experience Manager 6.4


public class SolrSearchServiceImpl implements SolrSearchService

One difference here is we show new way of reading OSGi config values for this use case. This involves these annotations:

package com.adobe.aem.core;

import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.AttributeDefinition;

import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.AttributeType;

import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.ObjectClassDefinition;

@ObjectClassDefinition(name = "AEM Solr Search - Solr Configuration Service", description = "Service Configuration")

public @interface MySimpleService {


    @AttributeDefinition(name = "Protocol", defaultValue ="http", description = "Configuration value")

    String protocolValue();



    @AttributeDefinition(name = "Solr Server Name", defaultValue ="localhost", description = "Server name or IP address")

    String serverName();


    @AttributeDefinition(name = "Solr Server Port", defaultValue ="8983", description = "Server port")

    String serverPort();


    @AttributeDefinition(name = "Solr Core Name", defaultValue ="collection", description = "Core name in solr server")

    String serverCollection();


    @AttributeDefinition(name = "Content page path", defaultValue ="/content/we-retail", description = "Content page path from where solr has to index the pages")

    String serverPath();

I ran into the same issue and I fixed it by manually installing the bundle in Web Console from my local maven repository. After that, the bundle will resolve the dependency and the service can be activated.

Note that I'm using Solr 7.5 and tried both jars from org.apache.servicemix.bundles.solr-solrj and org.apache.solr.solr-solrj, but installing org.apache.solr.solr-solrj failed with error: Bundle-SymbolicName header missing, cannot install bundle.

BTW, I hope someone can explain what the difference is, but org.apache.servicemix.bundles.solr-solrj jar is bigger in size than org.apache.solr.solr-solrj.

Do you think is there a chance you guys could update a more recent Solr version? That makes the big difference on this issues though. That would be really awesome 🙂

We are getting the same kind of problems when trying to do the same project on the article (sing archetype 22) and different Solr versions, higher than 7.1
