Lucene in Action
A guide to the Java search engine

Greenwich, CT, December 31, 2004 -- Lucene is a gem in the open-source
world -- a highly scalable, fast search engine that delivers performance and
is easy to use. Lucene powers search in diverse places: in discussion groups
at Fortune 100 companies, in commercial issue trackers, in email search
from Microsoft, and in the Nutch web search engine (that scales to billions
of pages). It is used by businesses such as Akamai, Overture, Technorati,
HotJobs, Epiphany, FedEx, Mayo Clinic, MIT, and many others.

"Lucene in Action" is the authoritative guide to Lucene written by experts.
The book describes how to index data, including types that developers need
to know such as MS Word, PDF, HTML, and XML. It introduces searching,
sorting, filtering, and highlighting search results. With many reusable examples
and good advice on best practices, "Lucene in Action" demonstrates how to
easily add search to applications.

It is written for developers who need powerful search capabilities in their
applications or those who are curious about Lucene or indexing and search
technicques. Sample chapters are available at
