Apache Lucene – PHP Implementation VS Java version

10 May

I was excited to know about Lucene’s inclusion into Zend’s Framework, but a bit of Googling brought up some serious performance issues with the PHP implementation. The Java implementation works faster and I would consider using it instead.

By the way, the Xapian project offers much superior performance as shown by my Recoll personal search system. I have indexed more than 7GB of data which consists of large PDF files, IMAP mailboxes, Text files, DOC files, etc.

The search results are quick, considering the size of the data indexed and the resources on my machine.

Good work Xapian team !!
