Thank Jack very much.

Btw, I still find a details tutorial which guide me step by step, from download lucene until
configure IDE (I unzipped lucene and received a complex folder - I don't know what should
I do next?)

And, a dummy question,there are three files to download in lucene 4.3.1 download page. Which
file I should download?

I would also note that Solr is a great way to start learning Lucene since a 
lot of the underlying Lucene concepts are visible in Solr and eventually a 
lot of Lucene users will end up having to re-invent features that Solr adds 
to Lucene, anyway.

Maybe when I finish covering Solr in my e-book I'll start diving into 
coverage of Lucene as well. The original book idea did include covering both 
Lucene and Solr, but that deal fell through and I decided to stick with Solr 
as my initial focus.

Actually, I've already had some thoughts about adding some chapters on a 
deeper dive into underlying Lucene concepts for Solr users, such as the 
structure of Query objects and tokenization and token filtering, mostly 
since advanced Solr users run into issues there, but those areas are 
difficult for Lucene users as well.

Right, unfortunately, there's nothing that I know of that's super-recent.
Jack Kupransky is e-publishing a book on Solr, which will be more up
to date but I don't know how thoroughly it dives into the underlying Lucene

Otherwise, I think the best thing is to tackle a real problem (perhaps
try working on a JIRA?) and get into it that way.

The 3.1 book has a lot of good background, it's still valuable. But the
examples will be out of date.

Unfortunately, writing a book is an incredible amount of work, writing
code is much more fun <G>...
