The folder containing this readme can be placed
right into the Lucene Java 1.9.1 source code release,
into the folder lucene-1.9.1/src/vjc

The lucene.sln is a "Solution" file for Visual Studio 2005.
It should be sufficient to use the free "Visual J# 2005 Express Edition"
from http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualj/

Or you can just run the BUILD.BAT, calling the vjc.exe compiler
through the MSBUILD.EXE.  This requires the .NET 2.0 runtime
downloaded from http://update.microsoft.com/ or
or http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5

It is hoped that this will not be significantly more difficult
than using the Gnu native compiler for the Java language, gcj.

Download lucene-1.9.1-vjc.zip here.

The same work has also been done using the sources from the lucene trunk (what will become lucene 2.0). This is available here: lucene-2.0-vjc.zip.
