Hi Diego

Greenstone "kind of" supports lucene. It is still quite buggy, but
hopefully the next release will work properly. (we thought that 2.60
worked properly with lucene, but have recently found quite a few bugs in
it :-( )

All we have implemented is very simple indexing (document/section level,
text/metadata) and basic querying. We just use lucene's QueryParser and
Searcher. eg

Query query = QueryParser.parse(line, "TX", analyzer);
Hits hits =;

I guess that any features provided by the query syntax will be available
to greenstone, but any features where you need to write java code to
take advantage of them won't be available.

There is currently no documentation about this :-(

I hope this answers your question a little bit. If you have more
specific questions I'll try and answer them.
