Hi Chris,

Good point. Just thought I'd mentioned it since it's Amazon AWS (one of
the big players) that has deployed a discovery service.

It is interesting to note the similarities between Apache Solr's Update
JSON document format and AWS's Search Data Format (SDF) JSON document
format. But Solr has been supporting JSON Updates since version 3.1.
