The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Apache Lucene. First developed in 1997, the Lucene information retrieval software entered the ASF as a sub-project of the Apache Jakarta project in 2001, and soon became a standalone, Top-Level Project (TLP) in 2005.

Global Newswire brought this news to our attention in their article, “The Apache Software Foundation Announces 10th Anniversary of Apache Lucene.” Apache Top-Level Projects are well-governed under the Foundation’s meritocratic, consensus-driven process and principles. Apache Lucene has long been known for their open source smart search and indexing for eCommerce, financial services, business intelligence, and many others.

Indexing is a key feature in any document management system, but it is very important to choose a product that makes your content findable – easily and with thoroughness. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine assisted indexing.
