Subject RE: New to Apache Lucene.Net 2.0.0
Date Sat, 03 Mar 2007 02:05:11 GMT
Hi Tony and all,

First few comments. is not the official
Lucene.Net site.  Please use

>From the Lucene.Net, if you follow the download link you will see a
README.txt which will explain why you can't find the files you are looking
for.  Hopefully, by end of next week, those files will come back as an
official release.

If you can't wait, you can get the source code off SVN (again, see the
official site) and build the DLL yourself.  Once you have the DLL, you can
use it with VS.NET just like any other DLL.  Many folks have done this
without any problem.

As for a demo on how to index and search using Lucene.Net, in addition to
what other folks already pointed out, you should also look in the source
code -- there is a "Demo" folder which has two working examples in C#.
Given VB.NET being somewhat similar to C#, you should be able to convert the
C# demo to VB.NET -- Google the net, maybe someone already posted such an
example in VB.NET.

Hi Ed,
  I downloaded all the zip file downloads on that page and unzipped and
searched every single folder for the dll files and I was unable to find it.
I dont know what if, the dll files were recently taken from the zip or
  Is it possible to forward the dll files to me.

Try downloading the files from simply
download the ZIP file and look for the dll I the bin directory. Add as a
reference in your project.

Then take a look at the 5 tutorials here
, they are in c# but you can use an online converter like this one:

I had the same learning curve as you and although I only dabbled with Lucene
I got an indexer and searching system working quite quickly.

Hope that helps

Regarding the, am I to compile my files and get the .dll
files or its provided on the website.

And the first step, I would like to make is, indexing and building a test
document I can search with.

I am sorry for my elementary questions, I am very new to the lucene

Thank you

Sorry, my respose was leading but not informative. I would think you'd be
better off including the .Net dll and leaving it in its original state. You
should not need Java at all, unless you want to use the Lucene Index
Explorer for debugging (which is nice). What is the next step you're trying
to do? Index something? Build a test document?

The website I work on, is set up in VB and not C#

Hi everyone,

I am new to lucene and I wanted to use the search engine in my application). I have converted the C# files I downloaded from
the in the url to VB
files. I also downloaded Java 5.

I was hoping, if you guys could guide me through the next steps to
make, because I am seriously out of my element here.

Thank you
