The mroonga, formerly named groonga storage engin, will be included in the future MariaDB 5.3 release.

The mroonga is a full text search storage engine based on the groonga library, that is an open-source CJK-ready fulltext search engine using column base.

With the mroonga, you can have CJK-ready full text search feature, and it is faster than MyISAM's full text search in both updating and searching.

How to install

If you built mroonga as a plugin, enable it by the following SQL.

mysql> INSTALL PLUGIN groonga SONAME '';

Then install a UDF (User-Defined Function) named "last_insert_grn_id", that returns the record ID assigned by groonga in INSERT, by the following SQL.

mysql> CREATE FUNCTION last_insert_grn_id RETURNS INTEGER SONAME '';

[NOTE] By historical reason, the plugin name and the library name are named 'groonga' instead of 'mroonga', but it will be renamed to 'mroonga' in the future release.
