    Well, your question is quite broad and therefore difficult to respond to. What will your search engine search? Webpages? Files? Specialized documents? Ask yourself questions like that; the best advice I can offer is to start at the easiest point and build upward. Start with what you know how to do or have decided to do already, and get that done, sort of like a foundation for the more difficult parts to come.

    I truly don't know how you intend to do this, but I assume methods of the String class will be helpful in your endeavor.

    Consider parsing, indexing and a Database back end?
