Smalltalk and Lucene

March 16, 2011 17:02:37.700

Last talk of the day and of the conference - Dorin Sandu is talking about integrating Lucene with Smalltalk, so that he didn't have to create his own search tools for the large amounts of data that he deals with on a regular basis.

He wanted something small and fast, but also mature with a community to interact with - which is how he got to Lucene. Rather than reproduce the bullet points about Lucene, I'll send you to the website.

The demo is cool - he replaced the existing search facilities in BottomFeeder (which are pretty basic) with Lucene. The kinds of queries that Lucene supports are way, way better than the simple stuff I did :)
