Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENENET-167) Compact Framework & Silverlight Support
Date Wed, 24 Dec 2008 18:32:44 GMT
Compact Framework & Silverlight Support

                 Key: LUCENENET-167
             Project: Lucene.Net
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Andrew C. Smith

Lucene.Net should support the Compact Framework & Silverlight versions of the .NET Framework.

I've looked into what it might take to do this and most of it is pretty trivial to be able
to support these frameworks. Most of what this would take is just changing the different type
of classes to use for collection classes used inside of Lucene.Net. 

This does require changing some details in a lot of places, However this should *not* bring
any compatibility issues with *Java Lucene*'s API or index format. It will just change the
classes used to some different ones that the frameworks support and also maybe need 1 to 3
classes that might need to be implemented in itself.

Having made these changes Lucene.Net can be more available to new devices such as running
on a window mobile cell phone, or your pda, or run in a Windows, Linux, or Mac computer that
runs a silverlight application. This will allow the .Net compact framework & silverlight
developers to use Lucene.Net in their applications to provide their users with the same capabilities
of an awesome search framework. Developers can also use Lucene.Net to provide them spell checking
capabilities in these environments.
