Sreerupa,

That is a very general question so I will answer it generally. Hibernate search allows the introduction of full text search capabilities to a database at an abstracted level. What this means to you is you do not have to worry about the many low level concerns necessary with search engine libraries. We utilize the very popular Lucene information retrieval library as the engine of the framework. We have bypassed the serious update problem of a pessimistic lock to the generated index whenever a data update occurs. We provide easily configurable clustering capabilities out of the box and many more advantages.

Hope this helps.

On top of John's answer, I would like to point out that Hibernate Search integrates full-text queries into the Hibernate world very nicely, so it's really like a new way to query your domain model in Hibernate applications.

Chapter 1 describes nicely what you gain with full-text search and what problems it poses. It used to be available for free on manning's website, not sure it is still the case though.
