a higher-level layer above lucene
Hi All,

I'm looking for a solution that hides the complexity and the low level
structure of Lucene (to make it much simpler to use). I came across the
Compass Project which looks pretty good. I just want to know if there are
any comparable solutions (I didn't find any). Do you know about such
solution?

Thanks in advance,
Ákos Tajti

What kind of hiding are you interested in? Solr does a lot
of this...

As far as I know Solr is a search server and the communication eith it
is done through a RESTful API. What I need is a Java API that I can
use programmatically.

To do what? You're asking very general questions that are
hard to answer simply because of the lack of any detail,
use cases, etc.

Re: a higher-level layer above lucene [ In reply to ]
Erick,

we have a web application in which searching is a very iportant feature.
Through the years we added a few custom analyzers. Beside that, we
post-process the results returned by lucene (we hide those documents that
are not visible to the current user according to permissions). So to keep
it short: we need a higher-level api which makes the use of lucene much
easier and we can keep are custom code.

Re: a higher-level layer above lucene [ In reply to ]
I really think you want to consider Solr.

First, it's pretty easy to incorporate your custom
analyzers as plugins.

Second, the "no cache filter" (see:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2429)
was designed for ACL calculations. Using it
will also keep things like document counts
and facet counts accurate.

Third, you have a server/servlet environment
already, you're not introducing anything new.

Really, one of the things Solr does is abstract
the Lucene layer, while allowing you to still
do the under-the-cover things people often want
via plugins.

But to answer your question, no, there's no
simple abstraction layer over Lucene that I
know of OOB.
