Subject Re: Using Lucene for File Name indexing / searching only
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 07:13:04 GMT
Lucene is just a library.

You will have to write the tool, and it's up to you what data you
choose to index and how to query the index you created..
It can be filename, partial filename, prefix or even regexp on
filename, it's all up to you...
