Confusion between Lucene and MySQL fulltext search
Hi. I am currently doing a simple newspaper clipping system in java for project. Our professor wants it to have the google algorithm search. It will not anymore scan the contents of the newspaper, just the tags (i.e, author, publisher, date etc.)
So, I was kind of having a problem with what to really use. Its a desktop application purely written in java. The database used is mySQL. Ive been to this fulltext search and I do not know what I should use. Our professor wants it to be like google or similar to google search. I need ideas on how I could implement this. I've been through readings but sometimes I find terms I do not know... Some sites suggest Lucene to be used. But I do not know how to simply implement it in java with mysql... T_T
I usually find codes in PHP. Im kind of beginner but I know java fundamentals. Just sometimes im having a hard time understanding the advanced. Please help, anyone?
