Lucene Today, Tomorrow & Beyond, Simon Willnauer, JTeam / Apache Lucene, Eurocon 2011 from Lucene Revolution on Vimeo.

Apache Lucene has grown to one of the most widely used Open Source search technologies. For more than a decade Lucene has been used to retrieve search results for millions of users from mobile phones to world scale applications with billions of queries every day. This talk introduces the current state of the Lucene eco-system from a technical perspective and tries to provide a future vision of the project even beyond the next revolutionary major release.

I am glad to share my experiences with lucene here. I had got chance to work with apache Lucene and get some hands on experience with it. Basically, I had used it with unstructured data search and also used it for the search on my website. It is really an exciting and optimum search tool to be used and applied on unstructured data. Also its indexing is awesome. You will just create all the indexes in start and then will enjoy your fast search.

Very cool, Josh.  Let me know if you'd ever be interested in an introduction to Grant Ingersoll.  He's a good friend of DZone and he was the PMC of Lucene for a long time.
