I don't know the product, but I think it was not ported to so many different programming languages. I expect it to have bindings for those languages?
I have the same feeling. Notably, I did not find a native C++ implementation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:49, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
At least the PHP port is definitely a stand alone implementation. It uses the same index format, but runs without using any Java code. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:57, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Nowaday, it seems like Lucene become boarder than Lucene Java? 22.214.171.124 05:15, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
"Lucene" is the name of the Apache Top Level Project (TLP) which serves as an umbrella for dealing with all search related apache subprojects -- including "Lucene-Java", a java search library used as the foundation for some of the other sub projects (Nutch and Solr) and the reference implementation for some of the "port" subprojects (Lucene.Net and the now defunct Lucene4c). Some subprojects however have no direct relationship to the "Lucene Java" library, but are still included in the Lucene TLP because they are search related and share common goals and communities (Hadoop and Lucy)
In a broad discussion/context of user communities or Apache projects the term "Lucene" refers to the TLP and "Lucene-Java" (or "Java Lucene") refers to the specific sub project. Within the Lucene community (or any of the sub communities), "Lucene" is frequently used to refer to the Lucene-Java project/product as long as the context is clear.

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was to merge Kinosearch into this article, per merge proposal made in and uncontested since then. Ferret was deleted before the merge proposal was closed but was already included in this page, as is Apache Lucy. Euryalus (talk) 04:21, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
The C-based with Perl and respectively Ruby bindings "loose ports" should probably be merged here. They are briefly covered in the Lucene book, and don't have much additional coverage. Apache Lucy should be mentioned here as well. FuFoFuEd (talk) 16:07, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
