Ferret against Java Lucene index

Hi,

I am working on a project which has a large Lucene index in place. Can
(any version of) Ferret be used against an index built using Java
Lucene?

Thanks,
Eric

Hi Eric,

versions up to and including 0.9 apparently, with some conditions. And
it isn’t well tested either.

But tbh, there has been a lot of great work put into Ferret since 0.9
(now up to 0.11) it might be worth rebuilding if possible.

John.
