USART3 on STM32F4-Discovery

Just before starting my post, i would like to thanks the people of this very very usefull forum. A lots of topics helps me in my newly design.

So, yes, i'm designing a new board, and i'm evaluating my software on the DiscoveryBoard.

So my question is  ::  How can i send and receive several lines using  interrupts but, if possible without DMA?
I'm using USART3 on PD8 & PD9.

I've already made this software below :
void Init_Uart3(void){
  GPIO_InitTypeDef GPIO_InitStructure;
  USART_InitTypeDef USART_InitStructure;
  USART_InitStructure.USART_BaudRate = 9600;
  USART_InitStructure.USART_WordLength = USART_WordLength_8b;
  USART_InitStructure.USART_StopBits = USART_StopBits_1;
  USART_InitStructure.USART_Parity = USART_Parity_No;
  USART_InitStructure.USART_HardwareFlowControl = USART_HardwareFlowControl_None;
  USART_InitStructure.USART_Mode = USART_Mode_Rx | USART_Mode_Tx;
  //   GPIO_InitTypeDef GPIO_InitStructure;
  //configure clock for USART
  RCC_APB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB1Periph_USART3, ENABLE);
  //configure clock for GPIO
  RCC_AHB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_AHB1Periph_GPIOD, ENABLE);
  //configure AF
  //configure ports, &GPIO_InitStructure);
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_OType = GPIO_OType_PP;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd = GPIO_PuPd_UP;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_AF;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_8;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_50MHz;
  GPIO_Init(GPIOD, &GPIO_InitStructure);
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_AF;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_9;
  GPIO_Init(GPIOD, &GPIO_InitStructure);
  USART_Init(USART3, &USART_InitStructure);
  // Enable USART

and with this in my 'main' i can send a character :
while (USART_GetFlagStatus(USART3, USART_FLAG_TC) == RESET);
USART_SendData(USART3, 'b');

As you can see, it is just polling for sending, but i've nothing to receive any character...
I would like to use the interrupts, but i've not any hint to start..
And you? Maybe someone have already done it andd can help me? an exemple? Any help will be welcome!

By the way, i should mention that i have as TTL-RS232 translator between the board and my comp.
I'm using IAR EWARM.
