File Indexing library

Hi all
I am in search of a file indexing library. Basically I want to develop a utility like google search. Particulary in case of images Google searches the image by context. In my applicatoin I have to search words in TIFF files. Is there any library other than lucene available. I am already trying lucene. Also I have seen many web sites which use google search facility for their own search. How can I use it for my application.

Thanks in advance,

I very much doubt that Google will find words embedded in an image. That's a very hard problem being actively researched, and no comprehensive solution exists at this point.

You can use Google in two ways. You can embed a search box in your web pages that will report Google results for all your public sites (see the JavaRanch Search page for how that's done), or you can buy a search appliance from Google for use on your own intranet.
I agree. Here's the link:
