Plugin to index files and pdf contents

Hey everyone.

A few years back I found a great Apache/Tomcat plugin that had a backend that auto-indexed all files within a directory (including PDF contents), and a frontend web interface to search and download appropriately. I recall it starting with a "Z" but can't remember what it was. What was great about it was the deployment. I just added the WAR files to the right tomcat directory and it was deployed.

Any ideas on what software this may have been? Or if there is newer/similar software I can try out? It was great to index all my documents and be able to access and search them remotely.

Perhaps the LUCENE project has something like that.

Maybe Zilverline, although that seems to have disappeared.

Apache Solr may fit the bill, but I'm not sure how capable its ready-made web frontend is.

Zilverline was the one I was thinking. Contacted the owner and it seems the disappearance is temporary until they can move to a new domain. Thanks!
