The book is now (2009) outdated to the point of being useless. But it was a disappointed even before, there's precious little of useful information on how to use Lucene beyond the freely available chapters (that are, to be fair, quite useful, Lucene's API documentation being what it is). The 2nd edition coming out this year may be better. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"When Lucene first hit the scene five years ago, it was nothing short of amazing. By using this open-source, highly scalable, super-fast search engine, developers could integrate search into applications quickly and efficiently. A lot has changed since then-search has grown from a 'nice-to-have' feature into an indispensable part of most enterprise applications. Lucene now powers search in diverse companies including Akamai, Netflix, LinkedIn, Technorati, HotJobs, Epiphany, FedEx, Mayo Clinic, MIT, New Scientist Magazine, and many others. Some things remain the same, though. Lucene still delivers high-performance search features in a disarmingly easy-to-use API. Due to its vibrant and diverse open-source community of developers and users, Lucene is relentlessly improving, with evolutions to APIs, significant new features such as payloads, and a huge increase (as much as 8x) in indexing speed with Lucene 2.3. And with clear writing, reusable examples, and unmatched advice on best practices, Lucene in Action, Second Edition is still the definitive guide to developing with Lucene"--Resource description page.… (more)
