+Welcome to the [ Jakarta Lucene] wiki!  We use the wiki for
brainstorming, maintainance of a FAQ, a free-for-all link database, and lots of miscellaneous
snippets.  Feel free to contribute.  See UsingLuceneWiki for more detail.

to pages that include that word.

stuff, the UI and the process of selecting and parsing your data files to pump them into the
search engine, yourself.

+You can find the Lucene project at:[]
-  '''WantedPages'''

-  '''OrphanedPages'''
-    All pages on this wiki that are not linked to from anywhere else (and are thus very hard
to reach).
