Subject Searching "&" character
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 03:14:46 GMT

Is it possible to perform a full-text search for a string containing an "&"

For example this query:
	//element(*, nt:file)[jcr:contains(., 'Dolce&Gabbana')]

... produces the following error:
	Encountered: "G" (71), after : "\'Dolce&"

... presumably because it expects an XML entity following the "&".
However, if I replace the "&" with an "&amp;", the query works, but finds
only literal "&amp;" strings (e.g. "Dolce&amp;Gabbana"), which is useless.

Is there another way to properly escape the "&" character?

Thanks & regards,
