Seminar thesis about Lucene

During my studies at the FH Karlsruhe I wrote a seminar thesis about lucene. The thesis mentions regain only marginally, but it shows internal details of Jakarta Lucene which is the base of regain.

The thesis is interesting for those who want to learn more about the background of a search engine.
