It appears that you have not executed a commit that opens a new searcher.
You can see the change in the realtime get handler (/get) which shows
the latest version of documents, even those that have been indexed but
aren't yet visible to normal searchers, but you can't see it when using
the normal searcher.
The simplest solution is to issue a commit and let Solr open a new searcher.
Example Solr configs are set up with autoCommit, using a 15 second
maxTime, but in that config, openSearcher is set to false. Which means
that the automatic commits will NOT have their changes visible. If you
want changes to be automatically visible even if you never send an
explicit commit, you'll need to set that up.
