Subject Using Lucene for File Name indexing / searching only
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 07:00:07 GMT

I am looking for a java based tool for creating an index of all files in 
a specific direcoty that allows me to find the files by name  - similar 
to UNIXs locate tool.

 From the genereal documentation I have the impression that lucene could 
do this. But I also noticed that the primary usage scenario is indexing 
file contents - and it might just be an overkill to use lucene for this 

Based on your experience: is lucene the right tool for this or would you 
recommend something different?

Thanks and regards
