Subject [Lucene-java Wiki] Update of "LuceneFAQ" by GrantIngersoll
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2011 21:34:56 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Lucene-java Wiki" for change notification.

The "LuceneFAQ" page has been changed by GrantIngersoll:

  ==== Are there any alternatives to Lucene? ====
  Besides commercial products which we don't know much about there a variety of other open
source search engines available.  We suggest searching the web to find out more. Also check
the list of [[|Lucene implemenations]].
- ==== How does Zend Search Lucene Relate to Lucene? ====
+ ==== How does Zend Search Lucene (and other non-ASF ports) Relate to Lucene? ====
  Zend Search Lucene is not at all related to the Apache Lucene project, despite the attempt
to relate itself to the Lucene project via it's name.  It, and other attempts at porting Lucene
to other languages, outside of the ASF are not supported by the ASF.  The ASF currently supports
ports of Lucene to Python and .NET.  As far as we can tell, Zend Search Lucene was at one
point in time a Lucene index file format compatible implementation of a search engine in PHP.
 It's performance characteristics and APIs are significantly different from 
   Apache Lucene.  If you are using Zend Search Lucene, please ask your questions about it
in the Zend forums.
