Subject Integrating Lucene with Cayenne
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2006 09:11:00 GMT

I've been thinking for some time about integrating Cayenne ORM engine  
with Lucene to provide database full text search capability that is  
db-agnostic and works off of the Cayenne metadata. Now with the  
Summer of Code approaching [1], this seems like a good idea of a  
student project.

As I have next to zero experience with Lucene, I figured I'd ask for  
advice from the community. More specifically what I have in mind is  
an ORM query that does a full text search across a predefined  
combination of object properties, first looking in the Lucene index  
for matching object ids, and then fetching those objects with Cayenne.

Basically I am trying to understand whether such idea has merit (i.e.  
am I reinventing the wheel? Or is this something too trivial to even  
bother with integration?)
