I've got all my data already indexed in the database.

Can Lucene perform its search over my own index schema?

If the answer is yes, how complicated is to write the classes do to this?

Best Regards,
Felipe Nisrallah Saab.

I'd have to believe it would be *substantially* easier to just index again with Lucene. What type of indexes do you currently have?

I have some indexes to describe an "academic resource" (wich is the main theme of my project) such as name, type, size, keywords and some others that I don't remember now...

So do you think that's better I reindex my indexes using Lucene?

*I* would, because I can't imagine that you'd have the same quantity and type of information that Lucene can generate for you, nor would the limited information you've indexed be enough to let Lucene do things like "nearness" since that's (obviously) very contextual. You could include the information you already have, though.

Ok ok...

Thank's a lot!
