Hi Mark.

Sorry, it's rc1 really which is out. But if you go to the cvs server, then
you'll find the rc2-dev version.

Multiple calls to Document.add with the same field results in that "their
text is treated as though appended for the purposes of search." (API doc).

Can you try out if there's a differece between the cases you mention? I don'
t know but I'd be interested as well;-).

Ah, I've been testing out something similar to the latter.  I've been
adding multiple values on the same key.  Won't this have the same
effect?  I've been assuming that if I do

doc.add(Field.Keyword("content", "value1");
doc.add(Field.Keyword("content", "value2");

And did a search on the "content" field for either value, I'd get a hit,
and it seems to work.  This way, I figure I'd be able to differentiate
between values that I want tokenized and values that I don't.

Is there a difference between this and building a StringBuffer
containing all the values and storing that as a single field-value?

There's an rc2 out?  Where??  I just checked the Lucene website and only
see rc1.

Thanks everyone for all the quick responses!
