Lab Session

For this lab, students should have already signed to download Terrier from http://ir.dcs.gla.ac.uk/terrier. We can use the Desktop API as is, but for development we need JAVA in the local machine.

Lab instructions for using the API will be provided in class. Please read in advanced Terrier documentation. Bring with you a directory (folder) full of documents from the pupr.edu site or your favorite site to play with. This will be analyzed during the lab.

This lab report is due next week.
