I am looking for Java experts familar with, or able to quickly become familaier with the open source search engine Lucene [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] If you need more info do a google search on "Lucene" please. I currently have the entire dmoz rdf dump on my server. It uses mysql full text but this is sometimes very slow. I want to use the dump data via lucene. I also want toseparate certain categories out of dump - I already have the main 16 categories in separate tables. I will need a way to add results to the data. Some kind of site submit facilty that will be category targeted or for entire data set. If anyone has experience of Lucene it will be a big advantage. Speed of project completion is also a factor sought.
