Zend Lucene Migration

January 26, 2011

Lucene has been mentioned in many of our stories lately, but Zend hasn’t. It’s come to our attention that some of our readers may use Zend and Lucene together, but they need to make a transition to Solr. Stackoverflow.com has the perfect article to explain the process, “Migration from Zend Lucene to Solr.”

Lucene is an open-source search platform and is used in the execution of search engines and individual website searches. Zend Framework is a PHP 5 open source object oriented web application, sometimes used for cloud software. The article gives a step-by-step intro:

“In our project (based on Zend Framework) we have to find a replacement for default Zend_Lucene. Now I’m trying to implement Solr with PHP Solr Client in it. We have 2 tables, where we take the data: categories and offers.”

Follow the steps and you’ll learn a few things about the open source programs and Solr.

    I have recently migrated from Zend_Search_Lucene to the Apache_Solr_Client with a multicore Solr installation and results are pretty much amazing in terms of performance and ease of use.
    Performance was my main driving force to migrate because Zend_Search_Lucene is a nice integration but performs poorly when index size increases and causes lots of encoding issues when working with Cyrillic alphabets for instance.
    On one hand the complexity increases slightly but on the other hand one gains a clean and performing HTTP search API that can be used from different programming languages.
    Certainly my favourite open source project so far.
