Subject Lucene/Jtrix collaboration
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2001 13:06:56 GMT
Hi there,

I wonder if you (Lucene developers) would be interested in a collaboration
with us at There's lots of info on our
but briefly...

We're developing an open source platform for mobile, highly distributed,
scalable applications (now 2yrs in), including Web sites. With Lucene
in Jtrix we'd have a highly distributed search engine which a user
could "call in" as a Web service whenever and wherever they need it.
Ownership, management and use would all be completely independent.

We've already packaged Tomcat like this in a rough way to prove the point,
and there's lots more in the Jakarta cannon we'd like to get to soon.
But Lucene is is a great model because it's mature open source s/ware.
And we use it ourselves ;-)

There's plenty more to discuss, but please let me know your feeling. Cheers
