Subject Database Store for Lucene
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2003 01:38:12 GMT

I have worked on a Database Store for Lucene off and on over the past 
couple weeks and wanted to contribute it and get some feedback from any 
interested parties.  Currently I have tested it with PostgreSQL, but will 
be making sure that it works with MySQL and Informix here pretty soon.

It is using the Jakarta Commons DBCP/Pool libraries.  The implementation is
far from rigorously tested, but hopefully that will come from some of you
who could immediately try it out and provide feedback.  I can think of
several optimizations already that would be good to incorporate.

To use it simply untar it while in the lucene source tree (lucene-1.3-rc2).
You will end up with the following:

    jakarta commons libs in lib/
    two source files in src/java/org/apache/lucene/store/
    an SQL schema file DBDirectory_schema.sql (for PostgreSQL)
    a LICENSE file (ASL 1.1)
    a README file with an example code snippet
Send me an email with problems or patches.  If someone needs a binary 
distribution, let me know.  Any feedback would be appreciated.
