Subject Brackets in query syntax?
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2001 19:03:16 GMT
Are brackets, [ and ], legal in a query?  
If so, do they have some special meaning?
If not, are there other "illegal" characters as well?

Parsing the query syntax, "[]", causes the following error:

Lexical error at line 1, column 3.  Encountered: <EOF> after : "[]"
org.apache.lucene.queryParser.TokenMgrError: Lexical error at line 1, column
3.  Encountered: <EOF> after : "[]"

	at org.apache.lucene.queryParser.QueryParser.parse(Unknown Source)

I am using QueryParser and the StandardAnalyzer to parse the query string.

Any help would be appreciate.
