Lucene, Nutch and SOLR

Workshop on Enterprise Search Technology

Is „full text search“ just an additional tool or is it an elementary part of all types of software solutions nowadays? And what about Big-Data, is there a connection between Big-Data and Enterprise Search?

Many software products or solutions offer full text search capabilities. Without such a feature set you could not imagine efficient business use cases. Beside simple database requests preprocessed indices are a core issue for good search tools. Such indices have to be maintained. But how to do this? Lucene and Nutch are two of the major components, one needs to realize an enterpris search system and SOLR brings usability, as it is a webbased service which implements the user-interaction with the core system.

During this 2-day workshop we look behind the scenes of Enterprise Search Technology. Together we create a complete distributed search solution. Therefore we look on the installation procedure of relevant underlying components like Nutch, Lucene, SOLR as well as on the integration of external software solutions which have to interact with the search system. An example Use-Case covers aspects of dayly life knowledge work.
