This talk presents the gCube Search Framework that is the orchestrator of the Information Retrieval process, distributed in its nature. It consolidates query and environment information, prepares and plans retrieval execution and ultimately offers the gluing elements that bring together all the independent components into a meaningful and performant collaboration. The gCube Search Framework supports Full Text Search, Content Based Search, Geospatial Search, Search over semi structured (XML) and structured (tabular) data; it is totally independent from underlying schemas and organisation of information; it exploits advanced Distributed Information Retrieval and Indexing facilities provided by external services; it builds in execution planning and optimization avoiding misutilization and overloading failures; and finally it handles efficiently the plurality and dynamicity of resources available on a gCube-based grid infrastructure.
