That's the tricky part, or where the runtime-hell comes in. What I did was to write a small java program based on the samples in Lucene to connect to my database and feed the data into Lucene. At search time, I have another little Java program that takes the query string from command line and prints out search results to standard output. My PHP script then just fires up a shell script that in turn runs the Java program, piping the output into PHP... I don't have access to the Java codes at this time, but the PHP code involved is available here: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/rira/rira/php/page/search.php?rev=184.108.40.206&view=log If you are developing in .NET, there is a functional port of Lucene to .NET too. There is even a port of an older version of it to Python. BTW, you need to make sure you compile it with Unicode turned on. I don't quite remember the details, but there was some. I also have a Persian class written for it, but it didn't do much anyway. In a few weeks I will get access to rira.ir server and hopefully move the site to the above sf.net project, so you can see what's inside. > Thank in advance, > Behzad Cheers, --behdad http://behdad.org/ "Commandment Three says Do Not Kill, Amendment Two says Blood Will Spill" -- Dan Bern, "New American Language" _______________________________________________ PersianComputing mailing list PersianComputing@lists.sharif.edu http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/persiancomputing
