I agree that couchdb-lucene would be more efficient. But for one of my
project (the tiny CRM app), I was thinking about using CouchDB instead of an
existing MS Access DB. As the app is to be run on Windows, I would have
liked something really easy to run.

The user of this app does not have internet at work, so I would have liked a
self contained app instead of having to deploy some java software
(jdk+lucene) + ...

So for my own app on a server, I'll give a try to couchdb-lucene. For my
tiny CRM app, maybe I'll use some pure couchdb code depending on

Thanks for all your replies,
