Doing some preliminary research on whether or not we want to use
ElasticSearch to replace some really old searching/profiling (i.e.
percolating) software we use -- Verity Search. This might seem like
somewhat of a naive question, as I'm suspicious of everything coming out of
the deep hole in the ground that is the unsupported and thoroughly
deprecated piece of software that is Verity, but... *does
ElasticSearch(/Lucene) support unicode out of the box? *I've read the
section of the docs on the ICU plugin, and between that and what's floating
around this list, it seems pretty obvious that it does support it; I'm
curious if anyone can confirm this with a flat yes or no, and also if it's
a pluggin feature (via the ICU plugin) or native to ElasticSearch itself.
I'm guessing it's native, while the ICU plugin gives you some of the
i18n/L10n features usually needed to fully leverage foreign languages, but
again, just looking for some confirmation.
Also wondering how responsive this list is...
