  • We liked what Lucene had to offer, but Plucene left much to be desired. So, we ended up creating a java servlet so we could use Lucene proper as a web service (lucene-ws.net [lucene-ws.net]).

    There's a Perl client in the SVN repository, though it requires an as-yet-unreleased version of WWW::OpenSearch. Indexing is a bit slow mostly due to the HTTP overhead, but searching is pretty slick and it now includes search suggestions.

    We'd like to replace it, eventually, with something more native to Perl. KinoSearch [rectangular.com] is relatively new, but is coming along really well. It's a Lucene-alike, which would make the transition pretty painless for us.
