Re: Desktop search tool using lucene

Seems to me the reason why gcj is a problem is the UI and not the
underlying engine. It amazes me how much effort is wasted in producing
substandard UIs to otherwise excellent software. I'm biased because of
what I'm used to (and not used to), but IMHO developing web based UIs
is much, much easier than the same thing in C++ or Swing.

Traditionally web based UIs were limited, but nowadays most of the
limitations have been removed thanks to CSS styling and 'AJAX'
techniques (example: gmail).

How about writing this software as a process serving HTTP requests to
a local web browser?
