I am an engineer at MultifunctionProducts maker.
I have worked at:
* building shopping site (using commerce package)
* building CMS in office use (using OpenCms)
* maintenance of web site (investment trust)
* maintenance of Windows Application (public authorities)

This talk explains how to build and use Japanese full-text search system on openSUSE.
Apache Solr is an open source full-text search system supporting Japanese.
Many products now use full-text search systems.
It is relatively easy to set up those full-text search systems since they are packaged.

At first, I explain how to install Solr on openSUSE and search a text from Word, Excel, PDF, and RSS documents.

Next, I explain an example of apply Solr to the online shopping site.

Solr have features such as :

* Facet search function can quickly show the number of items for each category.

* Highlighter is a function to highlight searched keyword when you search a text from descriptions of items. It can also retrieve texts around that keyword.

We can use those features for online shopping site since Solr can search texts from RDBMS.

Recommendation searching, spatial search, and distribution search are also useful functions.
I will briefly explain those functions as well at the end of this talk.
