Lucene uses Google

Today I was figuring out how to integrate the Hibernate search API in one of my projects. At a certain point the docs referred to the Lucene documentation. My old pal Google provided me the link to the Lucene homepage and when I opened it up I saw something very weird in the upper right corner: "Search the site with Google" NewImage.jpg

Yep, Lucene seems to be using Google as a search engine! At first I was a bit astonished about it. But why bother about it, the Google service is out there and it just works. After all Lucene is a great tool and I hope to tell you more about it in the near future.
