I am planning to build a bigger Internet platform and actually
Java EE and Rails. I have a lot of Java experience and I am quite new to
Rails. After playing some weeks with Rails I am sure that it is a mature
framework and I really like the productivtity of Rails. One of the key
advantages is that new developers will understand this platform much
than all the Java EE Apis and Frameworks.
Despite many features of our platform that will be easy to handle with
Rails, we need a good full text search on some Text database entries and
CMS for the content around the application (help, legal, .). We will use
MySQL as our database, which has some search functionality integrated
only with MyISAM tables and not InnoDB. It also fails with phonetic
searches. In Java I would use Lucene fot that which is a great search
engine. Does anybody know about equivalent search technologies or does
anybody has solved equal problems?
The same is with CMS - in the Javaworld you have Alfresco, OpenCms, . -
there any good Ruby/Rails implementations out there?
Thank you for your help.
