Subject Re: How to start with Lucene
Date Sun, 07 Jul 2013 11:11:34 GMT
Hi Uwe 

The first choice is my target: I want to use Lucene as a library.

Could you give me (by text or just an URL) to setup Eclipse with Lucene then start writing
some code.

Thank you very much.

Subject: RE: How to start with Lucene

It depends what you are intending to do:
- If you want to write an application that uses Apache Lucene, you can use the binary tgz
file. It will contain all needed JARs to build an application. Alternatively, setup a Maven
project and add the Lucene dependencies (core, analyzers,  queryparser,...).
- If you want to hack Apache Lucene itself (changing implementation, submitting patches to
the developers), check out SVN and start with running "ant" to build. To setup in IDEs use
"ant eclipse" or "ant idea", which builds project files that you can import into your IDE
- You only need to do this if you want to modify Lucene, not to use it
- If you don't want to code and just use a Server with Lucene (like a database server), you
can start with Apache Solr or ElasticSearch.
