4.2. Hibernate Search

4.2.1. Description

Full text search engines like Apache Lucene are a very powerful technology to bring free text/efficient queries to applications. If suffers several mismatches when dealing with a object domain model (keeping the index up to date, mismatch between the index structure and the domain model, querying mismatch...) Hibernate Search indexes your domain model thanks to a few annotations, takes care of the database / index synchronization and brings you back regular managed objects from free text queries. Hibernate Search is using Apache Lucene under the cover.
