Subject import PyLucene and Introductory Material for Class
Date Mon, 18 Nov 2013 19:28:58 GMT
Dear All,

I have recently installed pylucene (or so I hope), and I have been trying
to get started on it. Most of the examples I found the web have been using
'import PyLucene', however I have noted that examples from the Lucene
documentation only use 'lucene'. For me, PyLucene does not work for import
on the latest vesion I installed here (Lucene 4.5.1, python 2.7 on a Mac OS
X Lion 10.7.5) but import lucene works.

Was PyLucene deprecated or have I done something wrong along the steps?

Second,

Seeing a talk from one of your conferences:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCsS5ePGmCs

gave me some hope to introduce Lucene in an Information Retrieval class for
undergrads along with the theoretical concepts such as the one presented
like boolean and vector. Is there any other introductory material to
PyLucene along those lines that could be more oriented for students?

I was planning on creating a small usable example such as this presentation
(http://inkdroid.org/talks/pylucene/) where Lucene is used to index e-mails
(our university has quite a large quantity of e-mails that use this system
so it could be quite interesting for the class as an assignment). But
again, the cited code use PyLucene and so does the 'import mailbox' which
makes the code unusable.

If no such material is available and you could provide me some pointers on
how to get started, I would be glad to contribute it as introductory
material that could be used for other courses if it is of your interest. I
have scanned other courses from other universities but they apparently do
not use this approach.

Best,
