Subject RE: Lucene search should create index of Jackrabbit repository
Date Wed, 12 May 2010 12:12:34 GMT
Hi Alex,
        Thanks for the reply and information. It is very useful. Using Jcr:contains I am able
to search on the node content. But I need to search the file content also. It's not working
with Jcr:contains. Thanks again for the needful.

JCR has built-in search capabilities, including full-text search.
Jackrabbit already uses a Lucene index to implement this:

http://www.day.com/specs/jcr/1.0/ (section 6.6 for xpath, section 8.5 for sql)
http://www.day.com/specs/jcr/2.0/ (section 6 for aqm/jcr-sql2)

A simple xpath fulltext search query looks like this:

//*[jcr:contains(., 'my search terms')]

Here is some tutorial to get you started:
