Subject Re: Extracting Lucene onto Tomcat

There is no need to extract Lucene's JAR file.

Your questions indicate that you have some Tomcat and Java web 
application learning to do and this forum is not the most appropriate 
place to ask.  Lucene includes a web application demo that you could 
try deploying by following the steps here:

Just drop luceneweb.jar into CATALINA_HOME/webapps, restart Tomcat and 
try hitting http://localhost:8080/luceneweb and pressing the search 
button - you will get an error unless you've followed all the steps, 
but you should not get a class cast exception and Lucene will be 
working properly (now follow the steps to build an index and configure 
the pointer to it).
