Technological barrier for search has been lowered

Erik was interviewed by BusinessWeek and quoted in the article Search, the Next Generation.
The number of search sites is also skyrocketing, as the technological barrier for search has been lowered. In December, Manning Publications published Lucene in Action, a guide to creating search engines with open-source software called Lucene, which is already used on singer Bob Dylan's Web site. Armed with this book, the average programmer can create a search engine in less than a day, says co-author Erik Hatcher.

Jack Herrington, author of the fabulous , was the first to review Lucene in Action for Amazon. This is what he had to say:
This is a solid, well-written, introduction to Lucene and related technologies. The book starts with an introduction to the architecture of Lucene, replete with a simple sample application, then goes into an in-depth review of the indexing, searching and querying. XML and HTML indexing are also covered. As are performance issues. The last chapter covers related technologies and other implementations of Lucene into other languages. This is the best book I have seen on Lucene. It's an informative, fun read, that is worth the money if Lucene is central to your application.
Thanks Jack!
