Subject Re: Jackrabbit Lucene Query Syntax

Doh! Thanks for pointing out the obvious. (And sorry for the two email
messages to the list)
Another question, and hopefully, this won't be my 3rd strike. :-)

I think I'm getting close to getting this implemented. I set up a DB with
/root/base[@foo=bar]/child[@foo=bar]. I have some basic searches working. My
query "//child/..[@foo] gets constructed into:

{}testroot), name() = {}child, 1), null)

And, voila, it works! Attribute queries are a bit trickier. Let's say I
wanted to do "//child[../@foo]". I think I would have to end up doing
something like this:

{}testroot), name() = {}child, 1), null))
  +DescendantSelfAxisQuery(+ChildAxisQuery(_:PARENT:, {}testroot), name() =
{}child, 1)

Why is the DescendantSelfAxisQuery there twice? Well, you could have
multiple parent axis queries (e.g. "//child[../@foo and ../@bar]") in which
case I don't see any way around it. Do others see a cleaner way to implement

If that is the only way to structure the query, I'm struggling a little bit
with the best way to implement that in the LuceneQueryBuilder. It'd be nice
if there was a way to clone Querys, but I don't see a way to do that. So I
could try rebuilding the query from the QueryNode, but then I'd have to put
in some magic to prevent it from getting stuck in an infinite loop. That is,
I'd have to make it build a query for only //child and not //child[../@foo].
