Legacy Indexing operations are part of the Neo4j index API.
The default index implementation is provided by the
neo4j-lucene-index component, which is included in the standard Neo4j download.
It can also be downloaded separately from http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/neo4j/neo4j-lucene-index/ .
For Maven users, the
neo4j-lucene-index component has the coordinates
org.neo4j:neo4j-lucene-index and should be used with the same version of
Different versions of the index and kernel components are not compatible in the general case.
Both components are included transitively by the
org.neo4j:neo4j:pom artifact which makes it simple to keep the versions in sync.
For initial import of data using indexes, see Section 36.2, “Index Batch Insertion”.
All modifying index operations must be performed inside a transaction, as with any modifying operation in Neo4j.
