The Beyond Search goslings noticed a post from R Newson about couchdb-lucene search. A bug fix was posted. Couchdb-lucene enables full text searching of couchdb documents. The Github detail page is at http://github.com/rnewson/couchdb-lucene/#readme. couchdb-lucene uses Apache Tika to index attachments. File types supported include Microsoft formats, Java class files, and jar archives, XML and about a dozen others. Queries use Lucene’s default syntax. There are nine optional parameters which permit more sophisticated searches; for example, limit, which sets the maximum number of documents to return in response to a query.
