If you are using a facade or DAO, it's very easy to use either JDBC or 
Lucene as needed. All the application does is call the facade or DAO, 
what it does behind the scenes is out of sight.

Struts should not be aware what data access method is being used. The 
same business logic calls should be made regardless of whether you are 
using  JDBC, Hibernate, Lucene, all three, or a Mock implementation for 

But, yes, many of us who use Struts have been using Lucene for years, 
even before it was brought to Apache. I used in examples in Professional 
Site Design and again in Struts in Action. (And continue to use it with 
current projects.)
