The objective of this project is to develop a Bibliographic Retrieval System (BRS) for maintaining bibliographic databases. Bibliographic databases are repositories of bibliographic items such as journal articles, conference publications, books, and technical reports. The BRS system supports four major features: inserting a new item, browsing and querying items, editing and deleting existing items, and exporting a selected set of bibliographic entries into BibTeX format. The bibliographic data is maintained as an XML file. The BRS is a GUI system implemented in Java using the open source APIs – Apache Lucene and Jakarta Commons Digester. Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text engine that allows one to add indexing and searching capabilities to applications. Jakarta Commons Digester is an API that facilitates XML parsing and enables mapping of XML files into Java objects
