SOLR-86 create post.jar which eliminated the need for post.sh ... but as noticed in

java -jar -Ddata=files post.jar *.xml
java -jar post.jar *.xml ... data=files being the default
echo "<delete><query>name:DDR</query></delete>" | java -jar -Ddata=stdin post.jar
cat *.xml | java -jar -Ddata=stdin post.jar
java -jar -Ddata=args post.jar "<delete><query>name:DDR</query></delete>"
java -jar -Durl=http://localhost:8983/solr/update post.jar *.xml
