Lucene In Action SE extra free chapter and coupon code for CLucene users
Last week work on the second edition of Lucene In Action has been completed, and the book was sent to print. This book, authored by Michael McCandless, Erik Hatcher and Otis Gospodnetić, is hands down the best guide to Lucene, the high-performance search engine library. Whether you are new to it, or an expert needing a good reference - that's the book for you.
Manning, the publisher, have agreed to release a complete chapter from the book for free. This chapter discusses CLucene, the C++ port of Java Lucene, and is not available from anywhere else.
You can get it here.
The book is available for purchase through here. And there's a special treat for CLucene users: use coupon code clucene35 to get 35% off your order.
