Thanks for your reply.
Though I have studied Java quite a bit, it’s been terribly long time since
I programmed in that language (back in the university days).
I have a few questions:
What version of Apache are you using?
For the Web Server I’m running Apache 2.5.x (can’t remember specific)
How long did it take you to implement Lucene
Not long at all, maybe a day or two. But, I’ve also been actively
programming in Java for awhile, and still am, so that helps me out a
Do I need to install TomCat to have it running?
No, I wanted to avoid just this situation. I didn’t want a whole
servlet container just for searching.
Why are you using Apache’s XML-RPC server? Isn’t there XML-RPC
functionality with Rails? Just curious.
I’m actually using both. The reason for Apache’s XML-RPC server is so
that I can directly interact with Lucene through Java and not have to
worry about any cross language issues.
And actually, Rails itself doesn’t have any XML-RPC, but Ruby comes
bundled with both a client and a server, of which only the client is
needed in this case. Incredibly handy, I must say.
Hope this helps!
