Proposal for GSOC 2011 - Indexing Attributes API with Lucene - Gephi Consortium
by Ernesto for Gephi Consortium
The aim is to use Lucene to store attributes on the disk and index them in order to be searchable. The system should have a well-designed cache system to handle heavy read access on some elements. Though the need is not as critical as the graph structure, several features in Gephi need in-memory attributes to work properly.
