I have been assigned a project based on lucene and i am having trouble proceeding with the project as i dont have any prior knowledge about this field. I will appreciate your help if you could guide me with this project . Thank you.

Aim : Time Sensitive retrieval system that can adequately handle time and temporal information.

Scope : The scope of this project aims at developing a system that donít disregard time constraint while retrieving a document in response to a search query. For example ,queries about a car safety measure in 1950s would most likely retrieve documents about the current time. I will be implementing a new term selection and Weighting technique that would improve the accuracy of time-sensitive search. This project will be tested using Lucene and Java will be used as a platform for project development.
