Description

HIGHLIGHT

Hibernate Search in Action

presents the concepts and techniques a Java developer

needs to add full-featured search to enterprise applications. Author

Emmanuel Bernard is the lead developer of the Hibernate Search project at

RedHat/JBoss.

DESCRIPTION

Enterprise and web applications require full-featured, “Google-quality” search

capabilities, but such features are notoriously difficult to implement and maintain.

Hibernate Search builds on the Lucene feature set and offers an easyto-

implement interface that integrates seamlessly with Hibernate—the leading

data persistence solution for Java applications.

Hibernate Search in Action introduces both the principles of enterprise search

and the implementation details a Java developer will need to use Hibernate

Search effectively. This book blends the insights of the Hibernate Search lead

developer with the practical techniques required to index and manipulate data,

assemble and execute search queries, and create smart filters for better search

results. Along the way, the reader masters performance-boosting concepts like

using Hibernate Search in a clustered environment and integrating with the

features already in your applications.

This book assumes you’re a competent Java developer with some experience

using Hibernate and Lucene.

KEY POINTS

• Hibernate Search is a mature (version 3) technology with the full support

and backing of JBoss/RedHat.

• Authors Bernard and Griffin are well-known as the experts in this area.

• Writing is concise and to-the-point, staying focused on practical concerns.

MARKET INFORMATION

Enterprise applications require high-quality search to give users access to and

control over the massive amounts of information stored in databases and other

structures. Lucene, the ultra-powerful foundation for many search implementations,

is difficult to use directly. Hibernate Search makes the power of Lucene

directly available to the millions of Java developers working with Hibernatebased

applications.

Emmanuel Bernard

joined the Hibernate team in 2003 and is now the lead

developer of Hibernate Annotations and Hibernate EntityManager, two key projects

on top of the Hibernate core implementing the Java Persistence specification.

He has also led the Hibernate Search project from its inception, reconciling the

two fields. Emmanuel has been involved in ORM and Full Text search and is a regular

speaker at various conferences and JUGs, including JavaOne, JBoss World,

and Javapolis (Javoxx). He is also involved in the Java Community Process as a

specification lead for JSR 303 (Bean Validation) and as an expert group member

for JSR 317 (Java Persistence 2.0).

John Griffin is the software engineer/architect for SOS Staffing Services, Inc. He

was formerly the lead e-commerce architect for Iomega Corporation, lead SOA

architect for Realm Systems, and an independent consultant for the Dept of the

Interior, among many other callings. John is the author of XML and SQL Server

2000 published by New Riders Press. He is a member of the ACM.
