Hi mate,

we did that (w/ lucene 3.6)  and reconsidered it as "very bad idea" afterwards. Why? (a) out
of the box, mongodb does only 16-mb files. Lucene files grow (much) larger than that. (b)
lucene indices seem highly optimized to create good performance when reading them from disk.
A layer like gridfs is likely to destroy all that handcrafted performance benefits.

So you can strore it in mongodb, but there are better ways (e.g. using solr as store instead
of mongo)

Kind regards,

Betreff: lucene and mongodb

Hi team,
I'm working with apache lucene 4.2.1 and I would like to store lucene index in a NoSql database.
So my questions are,
- Can I store the lucene index in a mongodb database ?

thanks you team!
