Subject Re: Tika and CouchDB Lucene

Tika is fully integrated into couchdb-lucene. You've likely omitted
one or more steps in the README, but you should have built a zip file
with 'mvn', unzipped it, and run couchdb-lucene from there. the
startup scripts to put all of Tika on the classpath are included.
