No I mean Jackrabbit. What I did get wrong was use the term 'indexer' in
the scope of Jackrabbit. Jackrabbit does not do indexing - lucene does.
What Jackrabbit does is filter 'binary' data into a format suitable for
feeding into lucene's text indexer. In the case of text/plain resources, it
simply hands off the text to lucene. For PDF etc, it extracts the human
readable text portion from the binary data, and then feeds that to lucene.
