think first of the relevance of the model in this 2 search engine  for
XML document retrieval.

Lucene is classic fulltext search engine  using the vector space
model. this model is efficient for indexing  no structred document
(like plain text file ) and not made for structured document like XML.
there is a XML demo of lucene sandbox but it's not really very
efficient because it doesn't take advantage of  the document strucutre
in the indexing and the ranking model, so it lose semantic information
and relevance.

i don't know Ixiasoft, check the information to see how it index and
rank XML document.
