Subject Re: contrib/queryParsers/surround
Date Mon, 30 May 2005 00:44:35 GMT
I concur with Daniel on this.  For the moment, my preference is to  
bring in Paul's parser into contrib/surround and let it gain some  
additional exposure there.  I don't believe its possible or even  
preferable to attempt to build one query parser to rule them all.   
While a decent general purpose one is handy, I'm finding that my  
projects really demand more custom parsing capabilities than the  
built-in QueryParser can handle and that the quirks of the current  
parser cause some frustrations sometimes.

Perhaps over time, the built-in QueryParser can adopt some additional  
capabilities such as supporting the SpanQuery family but let's take  
that sort of thing slowly.
