Sitefinity uses the Lucene search library

I thought it would be useful to point out that Sitefinity uses the .NET port of Lucene.

Using this library should probably be strongly considered if we ever need to provide these features.

  • Searching
  • Indexing
  • Spell checking
  • Hit highlighting
  • Tokenization

Yes, I agree. @greg_smalter and I used SQL Server full-text search for a while and were never that happy with it. If I had to do something like that again Iā€™d definitely look at Lucene first.
