ColdFusion MX includes Verity K2 Server search technology. Verity K2 Server is a high-performance search engine designed to process searches quickly in a high-performance, distributed system.

Similar to Verity, Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.

The Greatest of all Time (GOAT) Search Solution is built on top of Lucene but since Java is an extremely complicated Java application, GOAT, was built to address certain factors that ColdFusion developers might not like:

High cost of Enterprise Search Solution (Estimates)
Verity OEM limitations
High performance cost of full-text search on a RDBMS

Complexity of Java Application, hence Lucene
GOAT is a ColdFusion application that utilizes the best practices of Lucene, the simplicity of ColdFusion and helps address some of the limitations that come with Verity®.
