I have a bucket of PDF files that make up help content. I would like to allow my users access to the via Eclipses built-in search. What do I have to do to include the PDFs? I have already listed the directory in the 'extradir' key of my extension point. - No effect. Do I have to plug a PDF adapter into the search engine? ? ?

Are there default implementations for PDF or boilerplates? Surely this must be a common case!

The extension point you want to use if you are using Eclipse 3.6 is For Eclipse 3.5 and earlier it would be Either of these will allow you to write your own code to add documents to the search index. searchOParticipant is preferred because it does not have any dependencies on classes in Lucene.

I have the same question: how to make the buit-in Lucene to index my PDF files? I know that there should be a parser to parse PDF to extract text for building index, but I am not sure whether we should code myself to do that or I can just somehow deploy a plug-in for that purpose?

Any one, any idea please?
