this sounds like a question more applicable to the java-user mailing list 
That is: assume you are using the Lucene Java API in your application. 
if you asking about doing Fuzzy queries when using Nutch, or Solr the 
basic info is still the same: asking your question on the appropriate user 
list will reach a larger community of people with more specific info about 
the context of your question.

Assuming you are using the Java API, then the Similarity.sloppyFreq method 
is probably where you want to start looking.
