    Question Using Lucene to search PDF Documents

    Hello *,

    first of all: Sorry for being such a newbie and sorry for my bad english!

    I am currently browsing the web for hours and trying to get Lucene running and to index and search PDF-Documents.

    I'm currently using Eclipse and i've got the feeling it's not clever to use it. Any better advice?

    What i am simply trying to do:

    index PDF-Documents
    search them.

    I tried some stuff like PDFBox and PDFTextStream but nothing is working...

    you need to know, by now i really know like nothing about lucene. I managed to run the LuceneDemo in Eclipse to search Textfiles, but thats all.

    I guess my biggest problem is, that i am not getting the right informations i need. The Web is full of examples, but often you get problems because of old releases and stuff like that.

    Does anyone have a quick example how i can index PDF-Documents in a folder and search them...

    I hope someone knows a good tutorial (or a book, website...) where i can learn what i need :-)

    Did you understand my problem? I know, bad english, so if you've got Questions - just ask!

    Please dont reply with Posts like "use google" - believe me, i tried and i am kind of frustrated ...

    Kind Regards

    M

    I'm afraid that I cannot help you, but I just want to say that your English is very good.

    Haha, well thank you. To be honest, when i received the mail "Reply to thread 'Using Lucene to search PDF Documents'" i was hoping for something different than for a compliment on my english, but ok, thank you ;-)
