Subject [Fwd: IndexSearcher on JAR resources?]
Date Sun, 01 Sep 2002 08:35:10 GMT
I posed this to lucene-user, with only Otis replying saying that its not 
currently available that he knows of.  So now it turns to a lucene-dev 
issue.... has anyone done this?  If not, what would be involved in 
creating this?  I can see that a Directory implementation is needed, but 
any other advice from the dev folks regarding this?  This is for a 
read-only index situation, so there is no need to write new entries, 
which hopefully should make this a bit easier and do-able.  Perhaps a 
RAMDirectory subclass that reads everything into it from a .jar?

Many thanks,

I searched the archives, but may have missed it.  I suspect someone has
done this before:

How can I read a Lucene index that is stored within a JAR file rather
than directly on the file system?  I want to integrate a read-only index
into a WAR and an EJB environment which has the easiest possible
installation and also adheres to the "no filesystem access" rules of EJB.
