FastVectorHighlighter truncates words at beginning and end of fragments
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LUCENE-1824
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1824
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: contrib/*
         Environment: any
            Reporter: Alex Vigdor
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.9
         Attachments: LUCENE-1824.patch

FastVectorHighlighter does not take word boundaries into consideration when building fragments,
so that in most cases the first and last word of a fragment are truncated.  This makes the
highlights less legible than they should be.  I will attach a patch to BaseFragmentBuilder
that resolves this by expanding the start and end boundaries of the fragment to the first
whitespace character on either side of the fragment, or the beginning or end of the source
text, whichever comes first.  This significantly improves legibility, at the cost of returning
a slightly larger number of characters than specified for the fragment size.
