Subject RE: MaxFieldLength in Lucene 3.4
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2011 07:40:50 GMT

The move is simple - LimitTokenCountAnalyzer is just a wrapper around any
other Analyzer, so I don't really understand your question - of course all
other analyzers are unlimited. If you have myAnalyzer with
myMaxFieldLengthValue used before, you can change your code as follows:
new IndexWriter(dir, new IndexWriterConfig(Version.LUCENE_34,

new IndexWriter(dir, new IndexWriterConfig(Version.LUCENE_34, new

You only have to do this on the indexing side, on the query side
(QueryParser) just use myAnalyzer without wrapping. With the new code, the
responsibilities for cutting the field after a specific number of tokens was
moved out out the indexing code in Lucene. This is now just an analysis
feature not a indexing feature anymore.
