Beginning Lucene

Hi, I'm trying to learn lucene,

I've loaced the project lucene in action found under 'source code' in downloads into my eclipse IDE.
And I'm trying to run lia.meetlucene.Indexer

I'm supposed to pass 2 strings, the first being the index directory, second being data directory.

So I passed "C:\\INDEXES", "C:\\DOCUMENTS", where DOCUMENTS has a couple of text files in.

But I just get an IOException.. 'Cannot delete bin'

Can anyone advise me what I'm doing wrong, this is so new to me, thanks!

Can you post an SSCCE with an indication which line causes the problem? Without that it's hard to say what might or might not be going on.
I agree. Here's the link:
