Subject RE: Opening (and building) the lucene source in eclipse
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 19:03:02 GMT
I did manage to get things built with ant this morning (I had some time and space on the train)
including the DBDJE support, although I wasn't aware any of it had been checked into contrib.
I'll have to grab that tonight.
I had tried building a normal Eclipse project, but was having some problems with it. At least
now I can build from the command line. Now I just need to figure out who to report the Eclipse/Ant
problems to...
Just curious, but when one is desiring to make use of stuff in the contrib is there any particular
reason to compile it into the Lucene jar, or include it in the project that's making use of
it, or is it really just up to the preferences of the developer using it or the needs of the
Thanks for your patience with my question. I've made some really good progress in the last
couple days, so it looks like I'll be giving the BDBJE integration a good workout this weekend.

I've not used Eclipse in a long while, and I've not used the new Ant 
project support it has.  It sounds like Eclipse has issues with Ant 
imports as you've surmised, and my recommendation is to simply set up 
a normal Eclipse project.  The source tree to Lucene is extremely 
basic... src/java is the only path you need to add to build the core 
Lucene library.  For the BDBJE stuff, you'll want to check out the 
latest source code of contrib/db where Andi has just committed the 
BDBJE code, and add its source path(s) to your Eclipse project as well.

Not using the Ant project support should be just fine.  I use 
IntelliJ without running Ant through it.  I simply use the command-
line to run Ant, and the IDE to do iterative development and unit
