>                 URL:
>             Project: Lucene - Java
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Store
>    Affects Versions: 1.9
>         Environment: MySql (version 4.1 an up), Oracle (version 8.1.7 and up)

> I've written an extension for the Directory object called DBDirectory, that allows you
to read and write a Lucene index to a database instead of a file system.
> This is done using blobs. Each blob represents a "file". Also, each blob has a name which
is equivalent to the filename and a prefix, which is equivalent to a directory on a file system.
This allows you to create multiple Lucene indexes in a single database schema.
> The solution uses two tables:
> LUCENE_INDEX - which holds the index files as blobs
> LUCENE_LOCK - holds the different locks
> Attached is my proposed solution. This solution is still very basic, but it does the
> The solution supports Oracle and mysql
> To use this solution:
> 1. Place the files:
> - DBDirectory in src/java/org/apache/lucene/store
> - TestDBIndex in src/test/org/apache/lucene/index
> - objects-mysql.sql in src/db
> - objects-oracle.sql in src/db
> 2. Edit the parameters for the database connection in TestDBIndex
> 3. Create the database tables using the objects-mysql.sql script (assuming you're using
> 4. Build Lucene
> 5. Run TestDBIndex with the database driver in the classpath
> I've tested the solution on mysql, but it *should* work on Oracle, I will test that in
a few days.
