We have structured Data in our SOFISwiki and wanted to have search for that. But a fulltext search like the MWSearch wasn't accurate enough. SMW Querys with searchforms from Semantic Forms didn't have enough features and didn't provide enough usability. So we had to create our own Search Extension called Extension "SolrStore".

We use a default Apache Solr with a 90% dynamic generated schema based on the Attributes from our Semantic Mediawiki. Our Extension provides a fulltext Search like the MWsearch and a "Fieldbased Search". The Search forms for the "Fieldbased Search" can be defined in the LocalSettings.php, but maybe in a further release it could be possible to use Semantic Forms for that.
