I have an architectural question about using lucene & probably solr.

I'm building an index for searching a CV database. Basically every CV on there will have some fields like:

rate of pay, address, title

these fields are straight forward. The area I need advise on is, skills and job history. For skills, someone might add an entry like: Ruby - 5 Years, Java - 9 Years

So there's essentially N number of skills, each with a string name and a int no of years. I was thinking I could use a field for each skill, and possibly add them like so:

1_skill: ruby, 2_skill: Java

But how can I index the years experience? would I then add a field for each one like:

1_skill_years: 5, 2_skill_years: 9

I could guarantee client side that a skill would always have a number of years, but can i search across the fields, e.g ruby developers with 5 years experience

Any help greatly appreciated?
