This library is part of The Wiki Machine project (developed in Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy); it provides a set of tools to parse the Wikipedia XML dumps and create indexed data.

It is used in commercial and non-commercial environments, among them airpedia (a set of open source tools that can be used to automatically create a set of mappings for the DBpedia project) and twm-service, an application that provides links to Wikipedia entites in texts written in more than 30 languages.
