Looking for a search engine to integrate into your application? Lucene is a good choice of course, but you still have a lot to do if you want your end user to play with it: UI, file selection…
SearchBlox (via TheServerSide) is the solution. I just gave it a try, and I must say I’m impress. In less than 10 min I’ve got my personnal desktop search engine running!
Here are the main feature:
– use lucene as the search engine
– can index and search HTML, Word, PDF, ppt, xls
– comes as a war file and is deployable on any Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 container
– free if you index less than 1000 files
