I have just started exploring Lucene 1.2. I was just wondering if it is possible to scan docuemnts available across more than one path. I am at ease w.r.t. to documents available in a particular directory, however, if the documents are available across multiple directories, can we index them? Also, I was wondering if its possible to index documents available at other sites using their URLs.

Any help will be very helpful.

Thanx and Regards,

Yes, this is all doable, but note that Lucene is not an application, but rather only a text indexing/searching library. In order to do what you asked about you will have to write an application that deals with loading files from different paths or from different sites, and feeds them into Lucene.
IndexDemo supplied with the Lucene distribution is an example application that does the basic indexing.
