Subject Re: Using lucene as a database... good idea or bad idea?
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2008 08:54:29 GMT

Hi Grant,

you made mention of jackrabbit as example of storing data in lucene.
I did not find something like that in source-code. I found 
"LocalFileSystem" and "DatabaseFileSystem".
(I found lucene for indexing and searching.)

Have I overlooked something?

Best regards
