Portable Lucene Index Format & Applications

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Andrzej Bialecki from Lucid Imagination had a great talk at Apache Lucene Eurocon 2011.  Below is the summary and i've attached the slides which are in PDF format at the bottom of this article.

"This talk will present a design and implementation of a flexible, version-independent serialization format for Lucene indexes and its applications in index upgrades / downgrades, in distributed document analysis, in distributed indexing, and in integration with external indexing pipelines. This format enables submitting pre-analyzed documents to Lucene/Solr, and transferring parts of indexes between nodes in a distributed setup."
