Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENENET-628) Complete ICU4N to production release
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2019 19:07:00 GMT
Shad Storhaug created LUCENENET-628:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: Complete ICU4N to production release
                 Key: LUCENENET-628
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENENET-628
             Project: Lucene.Net
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Lucene.Net.Analysis.SmartCN, Lucene.Net.Benchmark, Lucene.Net.ICU
    Affects Versions: Lucene.Net 4.8.0
            Reporter: Shad Storhaug


ICU4J is Lucene's biggest dependency. Several attempts have been made to utilize various alternatives:
 # [ICU4NET|https://github.com/niaher/icu4net]
 # [icu-dotnet|https://github.com/sillsdev/icu-dotnet]

But we ran into several issues:
 # Lack of support for 32/64 bit
 # Lack of support for .NET Standard Platforms
 # Lack of features, and problems when trying to implement them
 # Lack of thread safety

We finally ended up doing a direct port of about 40% of ICU4J's features in order to support
Lucene.NET. The project is named ICU4N, and is progressing in an external GitHub repository.
There are [several up-for-grabs issues|https://github.com/NightOwl888/ICU4N/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22up+for+grabs%22]
that we could use some help with to get Lucene.NET into production.
