Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4378) QueryParsers do not support negative boosts
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 01:35:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453629#comment-13453629
] 

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4378:
-------------------------------------

In my opinion, a better approach is something like the BoostingQuery in lucene/queries for
this demoting of terms.

As far as the implementation, I don't particularly like that it goes thru coord(), but we
could improve that.

> Negative query boosts have been supported at the "Query" object level for a long time
(resulting in negative scores for matching documents), but evidently we never updated the
QueryParsers to know about this - attempting to specify a negative boost in the query string
results in a parse error.
> we should probably add this to the parser grammer(s)
