>> Hi Sebarsian,
>> I've been working alot to find my language (amharic) analyzer for lucene as well as for opencms, but till now i couldn't find any. May be what I'm thinking is to write some code for the lucene, and then try to use that one in opencms. Well actually i'm not sure enough the lucene used inside the opencms is identical to the source code available for lucene. If there is any idea, please let me know.

P.S. you do not absolutely NEED an analyzer for your language.
An Analyzer will give much better search result because it will find 
words even, if an ending is added to the word.

But you can always use the English analyzer to have at least some search 
functionality. The result will not be perfect because the search engine 
will only fine those words that are exactly identical to what you search 
for, but at least the search will work in some way

Best Regards
