Subject Boosting search fields with Jackrabbit
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2008 17:03:00 GMT
I've been looking at some of the new search features within jackrabbit 
and am trying to figure out if one can provide boosting suggestions to 
fields on a per query basis. It looks like there may be some support for 
this in the source code, however, based on the docs the boosts look like 
they are index time boosts. I know that lucene and solr both support 
query time boosts using the ^ operator. I do not see any mention in the 
spec nor in any of the tests so I suspect it is not supported. However, 
I wanted to double check with the group. Has anyone tried to manipulate 
search results by boosting the importance of fields? This is more of a 
search function, but it seems like it would be helpful in a query 
situation as well.
