Adding search in Yii application

I need to add search functionality to the application I am developing. I found one article on how to add search using Zend Lucene but couldn’t find how the same can be done using default Yii application. Is there any information/prototype available for adding search functionality to a Yii application?

Thanks in advance.

This extension should work for Solr (lucene)

For general information about extending Yii check this:

Yeah, Solr is great but the only problem is that with the Solr extension you still need a java Solr Instance running on your server!!

There are many hosted solutions, altough I don’t know if they are good.
