Subject Re: Introduction to PyLucene Community and some doubts
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 10:49:51 GMT
Hello sir,
Thank you for the quick reply. I want to integrate this functionality with
web2py, So i would need to stick with python and Pylucene. So the method
you are saying is like, extracting text from all the document using
different python libraries, and then Indexing the data, then Search the
string, is this correct ?

And also, I have other doubt also, look here - in the middle of the page,
it is wriiten to import any function, i need to call like:

>>from lucene import StandardAnalyzer

but here, its not like this -
its written :

>> from org.apache.lucene.analysis.standard import StandardAnalyzer

So, can u explain me why such a difference ?

Thanks you!!
