Lucene.NET is a file-based indexing engine written in C#. What does that mean to you? It means you can dramatically reduce round trips from your front end web server to your backend services or database. So what does that really mean? It means a really fast web site. You can configure Lucene to crawl your data and index it locally on your servers. You can then quickly conduct a search and use Linq to return data to your application. This session will introduce you to Lucene and show you how to implement it in your applications.

You will learn:

  • What Lucene is and why you should use it
  • The basics on how to install, configure and query Lucene
  • Some advanced features of Lucene
