Subject Hacking Luke for bytecount-based strings
Date Wed, 17 May 2006 04:35:35 GMT

There does not seem to be a lot of demand for one implementation of  
Lucene to read indexes generated by another implementation of Lucene  
for the purposes of indexing or searching.  However, there is a  
demand for index browsing via Luke.

It occurred to me today that if Luke were powered by a version of  
Lucene with my bytecount-based-strings patch applied, it would be  
able to read indexes generated by Ferret.  Ironically, it wouldn't be  
able to read KinoSearch indexes unless I reverted the change which  
causes the term vectors to be stored in the .fdt file.  I'd probably  
do that.  Luke is great.

One possibility for distributing such a beast is to offer a patched  
jar for download from my website.  Before I start down that road,  
though, I thought I'd bring up the subject here.
