Hi Emmanuel and John,

had you any target applications in mind when you wrote the book?

Does Hibernate Search make sense for being used in a Reporting application?

Darya,

We had no specific applications in mind. Hibernate Search is a general purpose framework for providing full text search capabilities with database applications.

As far as reporting goes I don't think it would be a good fit. Remember, it was designed for fast searching.

Hope this helps.

As John said, Hibernate Search is quite general. I have seen it used in a lot of problems. Some of the common ones:
- search engine for e-commerce sites
- search engine for backend applications (admin, call center etc)
- used to save loads on the regular RDBMS database (either by replacing the query or by splitting the query into a full-text part and a relational part (and do an intersect)

Another cool thing that is poping up is the ability to full-text search objects in a JBoss Cache. Search for JBoss Cache Searchable. Basically hibernate Search is now independent of Hibernate and can index pretty much anything and listen to any event
