Terrier project is a probabilistic Java toolkit for building search engines.

Terrier is software for the rapid development of Web, intranet, and desktop search engines.

More generally, it is a modular platform for building large-scale information retrieval applications, providing indexing and probabilistic retrieval functionalities.

It comes with a desktop search application.

Terrier has various cutting-edge features including parameter-free probabilistic retrieval approaches (such as Divergence from Randomness models), automatic query expansion/re-formulation methodologies, and efficient data compression techniques.

Terrier comes with a powerful proof-of-concept Desktop search application [Screenshots], and full TREC capabilities including the ability to index, query and evaluate the standard TREC collections, such as AP, WSJ, WT10G, .GOV and .GOV2.

Terrier is written in Java [Requirements] and has been successfully used for adhoc retrieval, Web search and cross-language retrieval, in a centralised or distributed setting.

Currently, it is also being used for running various applications.
