[siren-user] How reliant is SIREn on Lucene 3.x?

Ok that's useful to know, the Lucene.Net folks are on 2.9.2 so I imagine
most of the necessary stuff should be present.
The plan for me personally is just to port the basic SIREn functionality
i.e. not the Solr functionality though the Lucene.Net folks may also want
to port the Solr integration but I have no idea what the state of Solr for
.Net is. I don't think there's a port like there is for Lucene AFAIK.
Thanks for the information,

The main changes in Lucene 3.0 was the new token stream api . But
this was introduced in Lucene 2.9. However, one class has been renamed
(CharTermAttribute) differently in Lucene 3.0 which breaks compilation.
When I try to compile siren-core using lucene 2.9.4, I get errors like
This is something to modify in order to make SIREn compatible with
lucene 2.9.*. There are also all the Lucene Version flags (i.e.,
LUCENE_31) to change back to LUCENE_29.
The rest of siren-core and siren-parser should work. Concerning
siren-solr, I don't exactly know what were the modifications, but I
think they were minimal.
I hope this helps, let me know if you need more information. I could
also provide you the source code of SIREn before the upgrade to Lucene
3.0. This might helps you understanding what needs to be changed.
