Subject Re: MultiTermQuery question
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2003 15:47:16 GMT
 yes, ok , i understod... but, are you telling me Lucene is going backward instead of forward?
in the previous release was possible get terms from a MultiTermQuery, now not anymore? 
i think there has to be a way to get Term from those query that extends MultiTermQuery.
Anybody can help please?
thank you.
