Subject StandardAnalyzer question ...
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2006 16:05:17 GMT

When StandardAnalyzer is used to index documents, arent the terms, 
amongst other things, lower cased and stored that ways in the index?

I have a index field that I index like this:

ramWriter = new IndexWriter(ramDir, standardAnalyzer, true);
doc.add(Field.Text("categoryNames", categoryNames));

(I periodically write contents from the ram directory to the file system 

When I search this field via luke using the standard analyzer I find 
words like this:
Digital Cameras
Digital Camera Batteries

Shouldn't the words indexed look like:

digital cameras
digital camera batteries

If I understand this right, when using standard analyzer, shouldn't the 
terms be indexed  in lower case?
