(prasad koti) #1

Hi Shay Banon,

I planning to use Elastic Search so, I need some information on same.

Wheather It is acts as server..?
And Elastic seach can be used to store data also like MYsql..?

I am planning to build a search engine like Google or yahooo, But I
know I can't develop such roboust search engine.
But to some extent I wanted to try out.
I am mentioning my requirements, please suggest me on this

1.For UI screens, I am planning to jsp
2.If I use Elastic Search wheather database(like MySql, Oracle..etc..)
is requied or not(For storing the information like keywords,
description about keyword search term,)
3.Is there java api which can interact with Elastic Search
(supppose user clicks on search button by entering a keyword term,
that "click"action should be handled ,which will search the data based
on keyword and display it on screen)

Please give ur suggestions or comments on the above.

Thanks and Regards,
Prasad

Yes, it is a distributed "server" solution.

In general, yes. Really depends on what you do.

As mentioned above, really depends on what you are trying to do. Building a
search engine like Yahoo / Google is a big endeavor, the search engine part
is only a part of it.

(supppose user clicks on search button by entering a keyword term,

Yes, there is a Java based native API for it, check the docs.

Please give ur suggestions or comments on the above.
