Benchmarks "A number of search engines are available for the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, many based around the open source Lucene search engine. It would be tremendous if we could adopt one of these search engines for the Gnome platform, so we can provide the type of integrated search experience for our users that they really need, irrespective of which distort they are using. So to help in this assessment we have carried out a comparison of four different Unix based indexers [.pdf]."

Member since:

For some reason Beagle lost points for being written in C# and needing Mono, but JIndex didn't lose points for being written in Java and requiring a jvm.

I guess the summaries have been written by different authors and haven't been synchronized prior to publication.

For example the Strigi summary lists "not clear ANSI C" as a cons(begin written in C++), which cleary also applies to the the programs written in C# and Java

I found it odd that obviously only Strigi needs a build framework while all other projects seem to deliver hand written make files. I would have expected that Tracker would be using autotools and the Java application something like Ant.
