The Migrating to Apache Lucene 5 training course teaches experienced Lucene developers the skills and knowledge needed to leverage newer advanced Lucene features and plot their migration path to the latest version.
The Migrating to Apache Lucene 5 course begins with a survey of current uses of Apache Lucene and how it is used at scale and in conjunction with other open source projects. With that context built, the course then examines the evolution of Lucene and it’s features from it’s first Apache release to the latest releases in detail. Next scaling, transactions, and resiliency of Lucene indexes are discussed.
The course concludes with a discussion of Apache Lucene performance and performance tuning.
- Name several open source search projects and describe how they use Lucene
