Hibernate Search – Think beyond Lucene

I had the pleasure of attending a really informative session on Hibernate Search by Emmanuel Bernard at Redhat Pune campus last week. Here is the premise of it.

How many times has a customer told you they want to search in their application “like Google“? How many times was the search engine in your application too slow? Hibernate Search brings full-text search capabilities to a persistent domain model, providing Google-like search capabilities while avoiding the traditional cost and difficulties to set up such solutions.
In this session, you will learn what problems Hibernate Search can solve and you will follow the steps of adding it to a Hibernate based application. You will build your own application specific full-text search engine. We will also explore advance subjects such as clustering and the underlying of phonetic approximation.
