LIMO 0.5 released!
LIMO is a web application that allows you to browse your Lucene indexes remotely. It is an ideal companion for Lucene applications that run in a servlet container.
The 0.5 release adds some cool new features such as:
- More index summary statistics, including index version number, deletion status, number of documents, number of fields, number of indexed fields, and number of unindexed fields.
- Querying the index.
- Display expanded wild card and range queries (using Query.rewrite) with term count so you can see how many terms a complex query is expanded to. This is particularly helpful if you are trying to track down an annoying TooManyClauses exception.
- Query timing to show how expensive queries are.
- Estimated query memory consumption (as given by Doug Cutting's formula)
- Query result count.
- Query result explanation.
- Stored field reconstruction as in Luke.
- Highlighting of matching terms in search results and reconstructed documents using Mark Harwood's library.
LIMO requires Java 1.4 or later and a servlet container.
Download it from SourceForge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/limo/
LIMO is still ready to go out of the box (er, war file). Just edit the web.xml to point LIMO to your indexes.
Thanks to Julien Nioche for starting a great and very useful project and letting me join it; and to Andrzej Bialecki for Luke from which I appropriated several ideas and his GrowableStringArray class. If you are interested in getting involved, LIMO is now available in SourceForge CVS.
