Hibernate Search in Action

A warm welcome to the authors of the book.

Am I correct in saying that Hibernate Search, so to speak, is a wrapper build with Apache Lucene as the core kernel and the one doing the heavy-weight lifting, taking care of the nitty-gritty details leaving the business functionality to the developers?

Well in that case, I would be really curious to know how the indexing would work and what would be the case in a peculiar scenario where multiple user are trying to add documents and it gets stuck in a index corruption mode?

Does it internally use HQL to map the simple/complex data structures to maintain the indexes and its synchronicity; reconciling difference if any? OR do we have to use Lucene querying?
