Lucene in Action A guide to the Java search engine
Greenwich, CT, December 31, 2004 -- Lucene is a gem in the open-source world -- a highly scalable, fast search engine that delivers performance and is easy to use. Lucene powers search in diverse places: in discussion groups at Fortune 100 companies, in commercial issue trackers, in email search from Microsoft, and in the Nutch web search engine (that scales to billions of pages). It is used by businesses such as Akamai, Overture, Technorati, HotJobs, Epiphany, FedEx, Mayo Clinic, MIT, and many others.
"Lucene in Action" is the authoritative guide to Lucene written by experts. The book describes how to index data, including types that developers need to know such as MS Word, PDF, HTML, and XML. It introduces searching, sorting, filtering, and highlighting search results. With many reusable examples and good advice on best practices, "Lucene in Action" demonstrates how to easily add search to applications.
It is written for developers who need powerful search capabilities in their applications or those who are curious about Lucene or indexing and search technicques. Sample chapters are available at www.manning.com/hatcher2.
