My DevX article on Lucene was just published
I use the fantastic Lucene search engine code in a lot of my work and research projects. I wrote an article for DevX that I hope people find both fun and useful. It is a quick start for using Lucene and a sample web applicaion that indexes Word, PowerPoint, OpenOffice.org, AbiWord, and PDF files - users can search for and download documents. Hopefully fun stuff!
