A starting point may be MemoryIndex (http://dsd.lbl.gov/nux/api/
index.html), which can be used for Lucene fulltext search over
comparatively small *transient main memory* XML documents, for
example as in Nux XQuery. Note, however, that it is not
straightforward to extend XML fulltext quering over transient main
memory to XML fulltext quering over huge persistent XML document
collections; the underlying technology is bound to be vastly
different wrt. data management, indexing and transactional
properties, though the high level search API may indeed remain
indentical or similar.
