Subject Re: Lucene with Database
Date Fri, 29 Dec 2017 06:10:44 GMT
Basically, I need indexing only for fuzzy search on entities. So, I’m thinking to create
Index out of DB tables (for the search term) and store it on server (cloud foundry, yet to
figure out how to achieve this). Now whenever, a user creates/updates/deletes any entity(es),
I would like to perform real time update on the index as well. This is mandatory and helps
in preventing duplicate entities based on fuzzy search (for ex: slsOrd, SalesOrder etc…
are considered same).

Thank you for pointing at Solr will give it a try as well.

    If we are speaking of indexing documents from db or from filesystem, it is
    the same thing.
    If you are thinking about a database for storing lucene data structure,
    instead of filesystem which is the default option, I will discourage you.
    The filesystem storage is the one officially supported.
    Since it's your first time with lucene, have you considered something like
    Solr or Elasticsearch, which offers you more functionalities without the
    need of implementing them?
