Hi. Please don't crosspost to both xapian-discuss and xapian-devel - pick

That's too broad a question for me to answer, really.  Many of the
criticisms of Lucene are either specific to implementations in Java, or to
Lucene.  Xapian certainly supports transparent searching across multiple
collections, though.

I suggest looking through Xapian code and documentation, and/or asking some
specific questions about how Xapian handles specific requirements.
