Subject Re: Lucene shows parts of search query as a HIT
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2007 22:07:54 GMT
Hey Guys,

I just checked my Lucene results. It shows a document with the word hit
"change" when I am searching for "Chan", and it considers that as a hit. Is
there a way to stop this and show just the exact word match ?

I started using Lucene yesterday, so I am fairly new !

thanks
AZ
