Hi guys,

As like others at JavaRanch I am also very thrilled to know the launch of
Hibernate Search In Action by "Emmanuel Bernard & John Griffin".

My questions are:
How worth is it buying this book for individual?
Does it cover quick start examples and easy going reading?

Chandra,

Without trying to sound like a salesman (or an author), here's some text from the front matter of the book.

This book is aimed at any person wanting to know more about Hibernate Search and full-text search in general. Any person curious to understand what full text search technology can bring to them and what benefits Hibernate Search provides will be interested.
Readers looking for a smooth and practical introduction to Hibernate Search will appreciate the step-by-step introduction of each feature and its concrete examples.
The more advanced architect will find sections describing concepts and features offered by Hibernate Search as well as the chapter about clustering to be of interest.
The regular Hibernate Search users will enjoy in-depth descriptions of each subject and the ability to jump to the chapter covering the subject they are interested in.
They will also appreciate the chapter focusing on performance optimizations.
The search guru will also enjoy the advanced chapters on Lucene describing scoring, access to the native Lucene APIs from Hibernate Search, and the Lucene contribution package.

Before you make up your mind, listen to what other people say. I'm one of the authors so of course I want you to buy it! Get multiple opinions.
