Subject RE: [jira] [Commented] (LUCENENET-167) Compact Framework & Silverlight Support
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 01:46:49 GMT
Serious roadblocks back when I was working with wp7 .net framework. I haven't picked it up
again for wp8, but im willing to bet it would be much easier.

Kamran Ayub commented on LUCENENET-167:

Prescott, did you have your progress available? I was looking at NoSQL options for Windows
Phone and Lucene came to mind as I use it at work. If you can share your progress, I may be
able to pick it up... There are some smart people where I work and some who are pretty fond
of Lucene. It might be a fun project.

For now, I will probably use Sterling unless I find something else.

Are unsigned ints available in SL5 (WP8)? I haven't checked. Could always write C++ code for
stuff that needs to be closer to the metal.

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