Subject What are the pros and cons of using the C# version of Lucene as compared to the Java version in a .NET environment?
Date Tue, 09 May 2006 17:00:08 GMT
If you are developing mainly in the Microsoft.NET framework 2.0 then
it seems that you have 3 choices for running Lucene.

What are the pros and cons of each choice?

1. Use the C# code from the apache incubator project 
2. Use the flagship project Lucene Java
   With the Sun java runtime and define some web services in an application such
   As Apache Tomcat that you can call from your other .NET framework code.
3. Use the Lucene Java sources as above, but compile it using the J# compiler, such
   As illustrated here:

I am particularly interested in risks associated with choice #3. Is the Microsoft J# compiler
to be trusted? Do the people using the gcj compiler have any experience to guide somebody
considering the use of a Java compiler not provided by Sun?

This is for a mission-critical application at a high profile internet media company.
