Are you using ant? By just using "ant demo" from the lucene root directory
everything goes fine. Make sure you have the latest ant (1.4).

And also, I would be very interested in seeing what you are doing. At my
previous job, we started building a clusterizer around lucene but turned out
to be a little bit slow, so, we ended up building our own similarity
measuring (manhattan distance between word vectors).

Subject: compiling example code

I am attempting to build the example code which is located in the


directory in the distribution.  Specifically, I'm trying to get,, and to compile, as a
sanity check, before trying to go any further.  (The project is to develop
an extension to the vector model using fuzzy clustering; details available
if anyone wants them.)

Two of these files compile without error.  However, when I attempt to
compile, I get the following error:

C:\lucene-1.2-rc2\src\demo\org\apache\lucene\ cannot
resolve symbol
symbol  : variable FileDocument
location: class org.apache.lucene.IndexFiles
1 error

I don't understand why I'm getting this error; FileDocument has already
been compiled, and the class is in the same directory as the other
documents.  Perhaps I'm just missing something basic about using packages,
but it all seems plausible.

Has anyone managed to get these examples to build, and if so, how?
