I am a complete newbie when it comes to programming, the only real knowledge I have was when I created a program 3 years ago in Visual Basic. I guess I know the theory behind programming concepts but have no idea what to do in Java. Not sure if someone on here can help me out?
I need to basically create a search engine to search for words or group of words in Word Documents. In essence, program the Find (Ctrl + F) feature in Microsoft Word, so much so that my search engine will also need to be able to locate where to find the word in the document.
Can anyone help me out? I need this done by Sunday, is this even possible? I am panicing so much...
I understand I will need some code to first open the document and probably put it in an array to search through? However, even that I have no idea how to do.
Currently I have the newest JDK installed along with Netbeans.
