Lucene: Search Engine usage/statistics

Hi,

I am planning to use Lucene API to implement internal search engine. One of the requirements for Search engine is reports. Reports such as popular search string and popular result page choose for a search string.
My question here is, does Lucene have any inbuilt mechanism/API to provide key data? Or do we need to explicitly architect something to capture searches and clicks on the result page?
Is there any popular design to capture the required data?

Thanks,
Kali

Lucene has no built-in capabilities for gathering such statistics. You'll need to keep track of search terms and frequencies and whetever else you need in your code.

You can check Apache Solr, which is Lucene based, but provides additional services around it. It may have what you're looking for.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
