Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3980) Word order seems to affect proximity searching
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 16:25:17 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-3980:

If the word order does not matter, why use a phrase query? A simple BooleanQuery on all terms
would be fine.

> It would appear that the order of words within a search query affects a proximity search.
> For instance, for the text "The proximity operator seems to match differently based on
word order", a match is found for "proximity order"~8 but is not found for "order proximity"~8.
In order for the latter to find a match, it needs to be changed to "order proximity"~10.
> Both the text and the query are processed using org.apache.lucene.analysis.standard.StandardAnalyzer.
