Subject lucene build with ant for newbies
Date Sat, 19 Jan 2002 00:01:24 GMT
Thanks to Andrew Oliver I was able to build lucene.  For those newbies out
there like myself here is a brief description/recipe to build lucene source
that can be added to the lucene faq or documentation.

Ant Installation:

1 Download Ant from 
2 Set $ANT_HOME variable AND add $ANT_HOME/bin to PATH variable
3 Download optional.jar file from
and put in $ANT_HOME/lib directory

Java 1.3.1 installation:

1. Install jdk1.3.x and set JAVA_HOME to your jdk1.3.x installation
directory.  Note-ant1.4 does not work with jdk1.2.2 unless you turn off JIT,
if you don't wanna mess with it just install jdk1.3.x.

Lucene installation:

1. Download and unzip/unjar/untar lucene distribution source package.

Building lucene with Ant:

1. Just run ant in lucene installation directory. No need to modify
build.xml and  Source build complete.
