I did mention that Lucene rocks, right?

I decided that I wanted to put together a comprehensive test of Lucene so I could show how powerful, fast and accurate Lucene is. This is just a simple Python script that is not integrated to the rest of MusicBrainz — it doesn’t even touch the Postgres DB!

My little test is hosted in the staging server — the DNS should’ve propagated by now. Come check it out:

    Very nice. There’s been mutterings about using Lucene for a while and I’ve always thought it would rock. And even in this early version, it’s obvious my faith was well placed.

    If you’re interested in the art and science of search engines like Lucene, and you haven’t read it already, Tim Bray’s “On Search” series is an amazing insight into what’s possible.

    *Highly* recommended,

    (btw is there not an option for some basic formatting in comments?)

    To follow up on my final comment, the line breaks don’t show up in the comment preview, which is a bit confusing.
