8 Best Open Source Search Engines built on top of Lucene

By my count I get five (5) based on Lucene. See what you think.

Lucene base:

  • Apache Solr
  • Compass
  • Constellio
  • Elastic Search
  • Katta

No Lucene base:

  • Bobo Search
  • Index Tank
  • Summa

Post has short summaries about the search engines and links to their sites.

Do you think the terminology around search engines is as confused as around NoSQL databases?

Any cross-terminology comparisons you would recommend to CIO’s or even users?
