Java Search Engine

Hey guys. I have a quick question. My friends and I are working on a search engine project that will hopefully be up and running by December of 2011. Here's my concern. What programs should I use to create the search engine. [Note: I have already been recommended to use PHP.] Thanks guys! Smilie

PHP is just part of the web front end. What sort of data do you have to search? I made a front end for CScope so I could search files and source code, for instance. You could grep -E / fgrep in files, display hits, display clicked hit files. Is there an open source Google out there? Probably not, or just a primitive early version !

Thanks for replying. I actually don't want to search "files". However, I want to search the internet. [Nothing complex. Just being able to find links works for me!] Any ideas?

I'd say you need (at least) 3 components:
  1. A crawler that downloads pages, and follows links on those pages.
  2. An indexer that builds a list of words used on each page (maybe in relation to other words nearby), and saves that to a database.
  3. A front-end to query the database.
For the crawler you can use just about any language since the main limitation is the network speed. For the indexer I'd recommend either C/C++ (for speed) or a language geared towards natural language processing (like Perl). For the front-end you can again choose whatever language you're comfortable with.

Can anyone link the software I need?

What do you mean by "I want to write though"? And you have to decide what software you'll need. If you want to use a scripting language you'll need the interpreter for that. If you want to use C/C++ you'll need a compiler for that.

Let me ask you a question: have you, as of now, written a program more complex than a Fibonacci number calculator before?
