I am have already installed Java-7 and solr on ubuntu machine but when I try to start solr I get the below error

Sunpot_id.rb:

Sunspot::Indexer.module_eval do
  alias :old_prepare :prepare

  def prepare(model)
    document = old_prepare(model)
    if model.class == Resource
      document.fields_by_name(:resource_id_ss).first.value = document.fields_by_name(:id).first.value
      if !document.fields_by_name(:filename).blank? and !document.fields_by_name(:filename).first.blank?
        document.fields_by_name(:id).first.value = document.fields_by_name(:filename).first.value
      end
    end
    document
  end
