Subject Re: QueryParser error + solution
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 12:58:57 GMT
If you're going to escape all the special characters used as  
operators in the query expression, then what is the point of using  
QueryParser?   Seems like you could just tokenize the text yourself  
and build a Query instance via API to support your needs.  Do you  
need to leverage any special operators of QueryParser?  Or are you  
just using it to take a string of words and turn it into a BooleanQuery?
