Apache Lucene™ is an open source indexing and search library written in Java. It is ideal for any application that requires full-text search and is the de facto industry standard search library.
Azul Zing® maximizes performance and throughput of Apache Lucene and enables the use of large in-memory indices not possible with other JVMs.
