Subject Re: Adding Fields to Document (with same name)
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2005 10:58:30 GMT
Hi Karl,

>From _Lucene in Action_, section 2.2, when you add the same field with
different values, "Internally, Lucene appends all the words together
and index them in a single Field ..., allowing you to use any of the
given words when searching."
