You will have to use some sort of XML Parser (SAX or a pull parser)  
to extract the content you want and create Lucene Documents.  Have a  
look at the tutorial on the Lucene home page for examples

IndexSearcher and create queries to do searches.  Again, have a look  
at the tutorial as a way of getting started.
