I'm trying to integrate Lucene into Seam (planning to write a wiki-item on this topic). It seems like it's possible, but there are some versioning-issues with the Hibernate packages.
The hibernate-annotations.jar package contains the org.hibernate.search package, but it's not in the ejb3 hibernate-all.jar file (in the lib directory).
I'm aware of the org.hibernate.lucene package, but it seems like the hibernate-team has left this and chose (the extended) org.hibernate.search package instead
I don't want to leave ejb3 grounds to work with Hibernate directly, so my question: when will the (new) org.hibernate.search package be included in Seam (if ever)?
As soon as we (Seam) get an updated version of E-EJB3 to work with.
