Using Lucene to index Code

This is an interesting project if you have some spare time to play with this – Lucene is a facinating open source project from the Apache stable that builds and searches full text indexes. have an article showing how you can use the Lucene engine and API to build a facility to index and search source code. It would be interesting to compare how this is similar/different from the source search facility in Eclipse, as I believe the search facilities in Eclipse are also based on Lucene.
