Thanks Lucene: or the art of indexing

With millions of tickets, tens of millions of segments, hundred of millions of taxes and millions of Tariff and contracts it’s almost impossible to persist everything in a database in a short period of time to conduct a research or analysis. Lucene does the job in a ‘first class’ manner. It indexes everything so fast that searching is faster than SQL query.

Apache Lucene, in a more formal way, is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.
