Key word search documents on filesystem

Does anyone know of a way to do keyword searches on documents in a
filesystem with something similar to Oracle’s Context package … with
mySQL/RoR’s? I do this now with a Java/Oracle (Context) solution where
the files are indexed and can be keyword searched. I have another
problem where I want to use RoR (and whatever else) to do the same
thing. I’m a RoR noob. Thanks in advance to anyone who can point me in
the right direction.

A-A-Ferret is definitely path of least resistance
