Hi Chris,
I investigated that way too, but I don't know how to do it.

I have a query that searches two words. This query finds both words at two 
documents, with the difference that one of the words appears twice at the 
first document whereas at the second documents the two words appear only 
once. This makes the first document to have more score than second, ¿is this 
right? I don't know if more factors affect to this.

Looking at the explanation, I see that the unique difference is what is 
returnes as fieldNorm.

What I don't know is how can I make that fieldNorm returns the same value 
for both documents, and at the same time this values is bigger than if the 
query only found one of the words, smaller than finding three of three...

I think that I only need a score function that returns the number of 
searched words the query found at the document.

I subclass DefaultSimilarity and set it to IndexSearcher, but I don't know 
what reimplementation of the methods is what I need.

what you want is not a customized sort as much as a customized Score ..
scores can be customized by modifying your Similarity, class -- LIA has
some good info on this, but the best way to figure out what you want may
be to start by creating your own Similarity class and then look at the
search.explain output for your searches to understand how your changes
affect things.

: Hi,
: I want to execute a query searching a few terms
: QueryParser queryParser = new MultiFieldQueryParser(new String[] {"tags", 
"title"}, ProcessConstants.analyzer);
: Query query = queryParser.parse("rocio ortega");
: and I want to obtain the results sorted by the number of founded terms, 
but not considering other factors like the number of times found each term. 
¿How can I do this?
: SortField.FIELD_SCORE doesn´t work for this because I think it consider 
other factors like the number of times found each term.
: Thanks
