Subject Re: Lucene VS SQL Server

On a past project, we used SQL Server's Index Server capabilities to  
full-text index and query Word and PDF documents quite successfully.

If you're already putting the data into SQL Server, I recommend  
giving its capabilities a try to see if it suffices, as that would be  
the easiest way to get full-text search.  But if you're not using SQL  
Server already and want to add it just for indexing, I recommend  
Lucene for the job.
