Many moons ago, I released a simple one page CF Admin extension that allowed you to perform searches against Verity collections defined on a ColdFusion server. With Solr now being able in ColdFusion 9 I thought I'd update it. I've reworked it now to support ColdFusion 9 (although it should still run in earlier versions) and I gave it quite a bit of jQuery love as well. Hopefully people find this helpful. In case folks are curious - to provide support for earlier versions of ColdFusion while also enabling it to use new ColdFusion 9 attributes, I simply split the ColdFusion 9 code into a separate include that is only loaded when a ColdFusion 9 server is detected.
You can download the bits from the RIAForge project I set up: http://cfadminsearcher.riaforge.org/
