Subject RE: MoreLikeThis across multiple fields question...
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2007 18:49:28 GMT
hmmm, that seems a shame, esp. if a term matches in a non-most-hits-occur-here field, and then
that field's boost doesn't get called in computing the score...

so, not a bug, then -- but i question the design of the class...

i'd much rather see:

conceptSearch:foo abstract:foo conceptSearch:blah abstract:blah

because matches to conceptSearch should be weighted much higher than the other field...

any further advice?

Actually looking at MoreLikeThis.createQueue() it's supposed to use only 
that field where most hits occur for that term, so you could end up with a 
query like:

conceptSearch:foo abstract:blah
