Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2996) make "q=*" not suck in the lucene and edismax parsers

Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-2996:
-----------------------------------

Yea, found that out actually, but next obstacle
{noformat}
lap:parser janhoy$ javacc QueryParser.jj
Java Compiler Compiler Version 5.0 (Parser Generator)
(type "javacc" with no arguments for help)
Reading from file QueryParser.jj . . .
Warning: Choice conflict involving two expansions at
         line 198, column 4 and line 199, column 6 respectively.
         A common prefix is: "*"
         Consider using a lookahead of 2 for earlier expansion.

Think we need to somehow say that {{q=Term(field)}} should be chosen only if NOT <STAR>
or something. But if you have some time next week to test it that's great. The learning curve
is a bit steep here.

> More then a few users have gotten burned by thinking that "{{\*}}" is the appropriate
syntax for "match all docs" when what it really does (unless i'm mistaken) is create a prefix
query on the default search field using a blank string as the prefix.
> since it seems very unlikely that anyone has a genuine usecase for making a prefix query
with a blank prefix, we should change the default behavior of the LuceneQParser and EDismaxQParsers
(and any other Qparsers that respect {{\*:\*}} if i'm forgetting them) to treat this situation
the same as {{\*:\*}}.  we can offer a (local)param to force the old behavior if someone really
wants it.
