  4. It took me about a weekend to achieve the basic functionality that this product offers using the same building blocks. In other words, get Lucene, get the text extraction components (POI, Text Mining), and apply to your application, or pay for an open-source-based product.

    Great. Why not package up your efforts and release it on sourceforge? Maybe the community can grow it to cover more functionality.
  6. Check out DocSearcher on sourceforge. It basically links all of these indexing & search components together - there is a web-based search capability, but the index creation and management is via a swing GUI..
