Working with Zend Lucene Search

Lucene Search is a part of Zend Framework (ZF) and large chunks of ZF can be used as a standalone and integrated into any existing application. Before getting into the minute details of ZSL, we should first understand what a fulltext search is. It is a combination of indexing content and then conducting search. For ZSL, index is made up of documents and these documents, in turn, contain fields, which contain content that is queried.

I am Airborne!

October 03 After the hectic packing...rushing to airport....last minute discussion's with Vineet, I am finally airborne! Just finished watching the movie "The Hangover” Got curious about how many more miles to London. I checked the map. Low and behold! I am 10,000 feet above somewhere between Tehran (Iran) and Baghdad (Iraq). Wow! I wouldn't want to jump out of the window here ! The map also shows me that I would have flown over Pakistan, Afghanistan and will fly over the Black sea, Turkey and Continental Europe before I get to London.
