Subject prefix query help ?
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 23:07:16 GMT
I understand that this might be better served on the user list, but  
trying here first since the devs would know best.

When doing prefix queries in the Lucene 1.9x

There is a term limit of 1024 (configurable). We changed this to be  
unlimited because of a domain problem.

The question is, does current Lucene have better support for phrase  
queries similar to

"uniqueterm commonprefix*"

we use this for name searching, so that you might have

"engels r*"

the problem being that the phrase "engels r" is quite unique, but the  
term r* is not unique at all.

Anything improve the handling of this in the current lucene?
