Unfortunately the demo that comes with Lucene is harder to run than it 
really should be.  My suggestion is to just get the Lucene JAR, and try 
out examples from the many articles available.  My intro Lucene article 
at should be easy to get up and running in only a few minutes 
of having the JAR (and basic Java know-how with classpath and such).
