Some of them, sure. Lucene is a single process kind of library though, and it is plenty fast enough.
I am/was being a bit disingenuous however - the one thing they all these high performance Java applications have in common is that they have no GUI. Java GUIs suck very very badly in performance terms, which makes ignorant people think that Java sucks very very badly in performance terms.
I don't mind; it's dead handy seeing who the ignorant people are.
