12.5. Searching

To execute a search, create a Lucene query (see Section 15.1.1, “Building a Lucene Query Using the Lucene-based Query API”). Wrap the query in a org.infinispan.query.CacheQuery to get the required functionality from the Lucene-based API. The following code prepares a query against the indexed fields. Executing the code returns a list of Books.

Example 12.2. Using Infinispan Query to Create and Execute a Search

QueryBuilder qb = Search.getSearchManager(cache).buildQueryBuilderForClass(Book.class).get();

org.apache.lucene.search.Query query = qb
    .keyword()
    .onFields("title", "author")
    .matching("Java rocks!")
    .createQuery();

// wrap Lucene query in a org.infinispan.query.CacheQuery
CacheQuery cacheQuery = Search.getSearchManager(cache).getQuery(query);

List list = cacheQuery.list();
