Hi guys,

Thanks for the comments but I've been following a number of
years now and bought Lucene in Action as a guide as I couldn't find
examples then. It's but to a non Java and non c# person it's really
heavy going and it's just simple things like include files which stops
the take-up. I was just wondering if there were any pre made examples
out there on the internet.

If not I'd be happy to put some together if I could get my head around
it, I do actually use on one of my web sites but when it
comes to integrating things like I was at a loss so gave

I just feel that helping out the development community as much as
possible with guidance and tutorials (step by step) would increase
take-up dramatically.

place to start if you are looking for examples of how to use a specific

Definitely not the right thread for this - I'd recommend starting a new
thread next time please. That being said, If you're comfortable with C#,
you'll notice that one of the great things about the Lucene.Net project
that it's a API-level port so pretty much all of the java examples will
as-is with minor modifications to the syntax and of course the proper
of method names. I know it may seem a little overwhelming at first but
it a try and you might be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to get
and running.
