Lucene’s performance, simplicity, disarming ease-of-use, and best practices are covered in this look at the highly scalable, fast, and pure Java search engine. Newly documented solutions explain what Lucene is and how it works and how it can be used in a variety of real-world applications such as Nutch. Users will also use this guide to understand and solve “analysis paralysis,” employ advanced searching techniques, such as filtering and custom query parsing, and handle a variety of document types such as Word, PDF, HTML, and XML.

The design principles necessary to create functional and dynamic contemporary mosques can be hard to grasp for those unfamiliar with the Islamic faith. ‘Design Criteria for Mosques and Islamic Centers’ provides an easy-to-use and practical set of guidelines for mosque design, illustrated with 300 line drawings. Case studies of urban mosques in New York, Washington, Boston, and London and Birmingham amongst others, demonstrate how mosques and Islamic centers have evolved to integrate into the urban scenario. The book also compares tenets from Western and Eastern religious and secular philosophies and discusses their relation to architectural creation, place-making, meaning, and identity. The book shows how mosques fulfill multiple faith-based and social roles through their design; it provides a wide-ranging, basic understanding of Islamic liturgical conventions and secular functions to enable architects, designers, and community advocates to work with confidence.
‘Design Criteria for Mosques and Islamic Centers’ is the first dedicated design guide for mosques and Islamic centers available.
. Features case studies from the USA, UK, and Europe
* First dedicated design guide for Mosques and Islamic centres available

A detailed introduction to the design, implementation, and use of network simulation tools is presented. The requirements and issues faced in the design of simulators for wired and wireless networks are discussed. Abstractions such as packet- and fluid-level network models are covered. Several existing simulations are given as examples, with details and rationales regarding design decisions presented. Issues regarding performance and scalability are discussed in detail, describing how one can utilize distributed simulation methods to increase the scale and performance of a simulation environment. Finally, a case study of two simulation tools is presented that have been developed using distributed simulation techniques. This text is essential to any student, researcher, or network architect desiring a detailed understanding of how network simulation tools are designed, implemented, and used.
