in thread Writing a database lookup tool

That sounds a lot like what I need. It's in Java though, which I am completely ignorant about. The perl port ( ) "is not, in and of itself, a functional search engine - you are expected to subclass and tie all the pieces together to suit your own needs". Does the same apply to the java version? I.e. it's not a full-on graphical lookup application, more like a toolkit for making your own, right?
If so, what does it offer that all the other database modules on CPAN don't provide?

    Apache provides Solr which is a web service wrapping Lucene. This can be queried using Apache::Solr or WebService::Solr.

    What does it provide? Speed. Pure, uncut speed.

      Thanks but I'm looking for an offline lookup tool, not a web service. I.e. both the software and the data would need to reside on the user's computer.
      I updated the first post immediately after I wrote it to make this clear, but I guess you read it before the update.

        So? The software won't know that it's not running on what you seem to think a server is. Your laptop would run this software, regardless if it was "online" or not.

        Why do you believe your laptop is incapable of hosting a web service?

        perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
