How to use api from c# in enviroment


Lucene.Net is a source code, class-per-class, API-per-API and algorithmatic port of the Java Lucene search engine to the C# and .NET platform utilizing Microsoft .NET Framework. And this is a very simple example to show how you can call Lucene API. This example creates lucene index and makes a search on it. 


It would be nice if you already used lucene before but there is no need to dig into that java world. this example stands for that.

Using the code

When you start using lucene you need to check is the Index exist or not this function will help you to cover that area. 

private void IsIndexExists(out bool created, string sIndexPath)
    created = false;
    if (!IndexReader.IndexExists(sIndexPath))
        IndexWriter writer = new IndexWriter(sIndexPath,
            new StandardAnalyzer(), true);
        created = true;

this is not a full of code example. this is the simplest way to use pure API from that is why you should download the code and check it out.

Points of Interest

I had a problem with godaddy shared hosting when I tried to use there. btw I have deluxe windows hosting. And changed somelines from svn(Revision 706104) code and decided to publish it here. The dll which comes from this example's zip file is tested here.

I voted 1 because there is no option to vote '0'. This is not an article. It is not at all helpful. It is a waste of everyone's time.
