Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-588) Escaped wildcard character in wildcard term not handled correctly
Date Thu, 04 Nov 2010 14:29:41 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-588:

bq. People wouldn't be escaping wildcards and expecting them to still be treated as wildcards,
so IMO back compat has no value here.

Ok, i would prefer to not create a mess and just change the behavior: add support for this
to WildcardQuery and 
the QP (it is a trivial change there), and fix the reversing in Solr.

I'll make a patch.

> If an escaped wildcard character is specified in a wildcard query, it is treated as a
wildcard instead of a literal.
> e.g., t\??t is converted by the QueryParser to t??t - the escape character is discarded.
