We have finished one demo for a client. The requirement is to search of documents (PDF, DOC/DOCX, text, etc) and display on frontend on Magento. The key point is that they have thousands (and even more) documents uploaded to file system everyday and the search criteria may change from time to time.

Our solution: we install a cronjob to regularly parse and index documents into Solr. Then for the displaying portion we send queries to Solr to get results in JSON format.
