In a sort of follow up to a previous post about implementing the entire Zend Framework inside a module for Symfony, Dave Dash is back with this new post showing how to put it into practice - creating a search engine using the Lucene functionality the Zend Framework offers.
In this tutorial we're going to delve into the Lucene index. Zend Search Lucene relies on building a Lucene index. This is a directory that contains files that can be indexed and queried by Lucene or other ports. In our example we'll be creating a search for user profiles.
He shows the structure of where the index can go and, of course, the code to get it there. He also includes a simple script for the other piece of the puzzle - the search itself.
