I recently had the need for some simple vanilla application using Hibernate Search. I wanted something I could run standalone without any container or such. I ended up with a simple Swing GUI using a couple of buttons and a JTable. Work is still in progress, but I think the application shows already the basics of Hibernate Search without any bells and whistles (screenshot).
You can download a maven project with the code from here.
Download and unzip the file and then run:
mvn clean assembly:directory cd target/hsearch-demo-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT-dist.dir/hsearch-demo-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT ./run.sh
You will need the following maven repositories defined in your settings.xml:
<repository> <id>jboss</id> <url>http://repository.jboss.com/maven2</url> </repository> <repository> <id>compass-project.org</id> <url>http://repo.compass-project.org</url> </repository>
You find more information about the app on this blog: http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/HibernateSearchClusteringWithTerracotta.
