Enterprise and web applications require full-featured, "Google-quality" searchcapabilities, but such features are notoriously difficult to implement and maintain.Hibernate Search builds on the Lucene feature set and offers an easyto-implement interface that integrates seamlessly with Hibernate-the leadingdata persistence solution for Java applications.
Hibernate Search in Action introduces both the principles of enterprise searchand the implementation details a Java developer will need to use HibernateSearch effectively. This book blends the insights of the Hibernate Search leaddeveloper with the practical techniques required to index and manipulate data,assemble and execute search queries, and create smart filters for better searchresults. Along the way, the reader masters performance-boosting concepts likeusing Hibernate Search in a clustered environment and integrating with thefeatures already in your applications.
This book assumes you're a competent Java developer with some experienceusing Hibernate and Lucene.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
