Subject Query Tuning
Date Mon, 21 Feb 2005 18:59:14 GMT
Hi All,

How does Lucene handle multi term queries? Does it use short circuiting?
So if a user entered:
(a OR b) AND c
But my program knew testing for "c" is cheaper than testing for "(a OR
b)" and I rewrote the query as:
c AND (a OR b)
Would the query run faster?

Sorry if this has already be answered, but for some reason the Archive
search is not working for me today.
