In the October 2009 issue of NFJS, The Magazine I presented a discussion on full-text search and the open source search library Lucene. Through the use of a real life case study (this author’s real life by the way) the true power and speed of Lucene was demonstrated.

Well, we have finally arrived at that future article and Hibernate Search.
