Subject RE: New Query Type(s)
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2004 20:28:20 GMT
I have done some testing on it on large data sets and they seem to work fine
(for my query types, which are very similar to yours).

Precision (#correct results retrieved by query/ #all results retrieved by
query) was good (i.e. 1), I cannot confirm Recall yet (#results retrieved /
#all possible good results) since I currently have no way of verifying the
search results other than running Lucene queries.

Thanks Doug

Yes.  The* classes now in CVS support 
these sorts of operations.  There is no query parser support for them 
yet.  If you have questions or problems about how they work, please send 
them along.

I'd love to see more query parsers contributed!
