Using the dtSearch Engine for Java -- Overview

The Java interface to the dtSearch Engine is based on the Java Native Interface (JNI). Therefore, both the Java classes and a platform-specific binary executable are needed to use it. 

The Java classes are in examples\java\classes\dtSearchEngine.jar, which must be on the CLASSPATH. Adding the dtSearch Engine examples/java/classes folder to the CLASSPATH, or copying its contents to a folder on the CLASSPATH, will make these classes available in Java. 

For information on setting up the platform-specific binary executable, please see: 

Windows 

Linux 

macOS 

Java version or later 1.4.1 is required.
