Subject Re: Indexing a binary field

You are correct that Lucene only works with text (no binary or primitives), Base64 would be
the way I would suggest.

 What's the best way to index binary data in Lucene? I'm adding a Lucene

As far as I can tell the Lucene API does not support indexing binary data,
and I was looking into Base64 encoding the key. Is there a better way?
