But the problem is our persistence model uses EJB 2.x Entity beans. So any idea on how to use a search engine for my purpose?

Can you be more specific on what you're trying to do that SQL can't?
As Maneesh said, Lucene has no built-in capability to index a database. It can be used to search an index once it has been created, but you'd have to write the code to index a DB first. Not a big deal, but just be aware that's what you'll need to do. [ August 07, 2008: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
