Google Your Domain Objects With Hibernate Search
Hibernate is one of the pre-eminent object/relational mapping technologies, but the Hibernate Search project adds full-text search capabilities to an already extremely capable tool to allow you to Google your domain objects.
Hibernate Search provides the means to add full-text search to your domain objects by leveraging Apache Lucene under the covers. You control which domain objects are searchable, how they should be indexed, and Hibernate Search takes care of the dirty work for you. It handles the object/index impedance mismatch and the task of managing the search indices. You can also execute full-text searches and retrieve actual domain objects transparently. We'll also discuss various architecture alternatives including using Hibernate Search in both clustered and non-clustered environments.
Prerequisite: A basic understanding of Hibernate.
