index and search a HUGE text file w/Java
Posted on 1997-11-20
I have a huge flat (text) file with each row being a record. This thing is about 300 MILLION records and is a textfile in a UNIX environment.
I want to be able to index this file and then search for a particular string of info...all done by Java.
We can do the same with a Sybase database, but we want to see the performance using a Java-based search.
Anyone know any Java apps that will do this? How about non-java apps for simply indexing and searching a file?
We want to keep the methods as close to the methods used to index the WWW as possible.
Much thanks to anyone who can help!
