Subject Re: First cut at web-based Luke for contrib
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2007 23:50:48 GMT
Compiled and ran it on Vista. Very cool. I am also a huge GWT fan.

This is a great start. Only issue I ran into was also the scrolling 
issue when selecting the drive...but based on the TODO: comments, it 
appears you have seen that.

It doesn't ask permission to read your hard drive because a webapp 
running in Jetty is reading the server hard drive and sending the info 
to GWT with ajax rpc calls.

My only concern is with the size increase this will give to the Lucene 
jar. Another 17 meg - yikes!
