Apache Lucene - System Requirements
Lucene Java 3.0.2 has the following minimum requirements:
- Java 1.5.x or greater.
- ANT 1.7.0 or greater.
- JUnit 3.8.2 if you wish to run the unit tests.
- CPU, Disk and Memory requirements are based on the many choices made in implementing Lucene (document size, number of documents, and number of hits retrieved to name a few.) The benchmarks page has some information related to performance on particular platforms.
Contrib modules may have other requirements, refer to their documentation and build files for information.
