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
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 Hibernatethe 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 youre a competent Java developer with some experience
using Hibernate and Lucene.
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.
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
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).

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
