    Hi everyone,

    I am completely new to JWNL 1.3 and WordNet 2.0 and am having some difficulties getting started......I would really appreciate if anyone could help me.....I am working on a project that uses JWNL and WordNet to find similarities between words and eventually between documents......

    I am using Eclipse as my platform for Java. I have started a new project there and put in it the java code from and all the packages from JWNL. It compiles fines and it runs fine doesn't do anything. I simply get a message saying "java examples <properties file>" when running it, but nothing else. I wonder what I am doing wrong......

    Do I have to link JWNL with WordNet somewhere, somehow?

    Do I have to specify a path somewhere for a text file to be loaded by JWNL so that it does something with it?

    Please email me to

    Thank you for you help.

      ...I guess you have to change a line in the file file_properties.xml (the line that indicates the path to the wordnet dictinary) and to run the example with this file in parameter ;-)

      Thank you Anthony but I sorted all that out some days ago.

      Now I am having problems when trying to find the relationship between two words.

      Any help in that area would be highly appreciated.
