A Database Month event:

Adding search to an application can be a daunting task whether you try using Elasticsearch, Lucence, Solr, or AWS's CloudSearch: you have to store text in a specialized database, separate from their transactional data, duplicate data, and write integration (ETL) code to keep everything synchronized. There's also the overhead required to setup, administer, back up, and re-partition your search database as it grows.

Brian will discuss the challenges of adding full-text search to your app, the benefits of Lucene, and how to build an app with Cloudant Search. He will cover:

- Benefits of Lucene's full-text search
- Search Index creation and indexing options
- Querying indexes via the HTTP API
- Pagination
- Coupling Search results with MapReduce index results
- Building an app with full-text search
