Workshop - Die Indexed-Search-Alternative Lucene in TYPO3 integrieren
t3n Magazin Nr. 17, 09/2009 - 11/2009
Compared to indexed search, the Lucene-based TYPO3 search described here achieves a significantly higher speed in load tests. The effort for the basic setup of Lucene as a TYPO3 search is quite low. More complex, however, is the implementation of special functions, such as the consideration of user authorizations, the use of “Boost Factors” and extended search functions. However, Lucene offers a lot of potential as a search engine and the implementation tasks do not refer to the development of optimized algorithms for indexing and searching, but to the application logic. This is a significant difference, as no technology risks are to be expected in the development here.
