can I find a simple instruction on how to do this ? After going through the documentation
I was able to start the Xindice with Jetty and after setting up the classpaths in the examples
I was able to execute the samples but I am getting following error when run the samples.

Apparently, the collection /db/addressbook cannot be found. You can create the collection
by running a command:
bin/xindice ac -c /db -n addressbook

For other commands available from command line, please see command-line tool built-in help
(bin/xindice --help) or Xindice Commandline Tool Guide [1].

I would recommend to take a look at Xindice Developer Guide [2] (it mentions running examples
as well) and checking source code for examples and command tool.
