Subject lucene newbie question
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2006 18:08:40 GMT
Hi,

I'm new to Lucene and IR in general.  I'm a bit confused on the concept of 
fields.  From what I've read, a field does not have to be indexed but its 
value can be stored in an index.  Likewise a field can be indexed but its 
value is not stored in an index.  Now how can a field be searchable when its 
value is not stored in the index and vice-versa?  Again, I'm new to the 
Index/Search paradigm.  Thanks in advanced.
