This sure is possible with Lucene. What you need to do is index the path
along with your documents, so you get a field like this: `path:
/subfolder/subsubfolder`. Now you can restrict your search to a specific
path. Including subfolders in the search can be done by adding a '*' to
the path used in the query.

Kind regards,

Subject: Query regarding usage of Lucene(Filtering folder)

Hi All,


I had a query regarding usage of lucene.

I have done the indexing for the files kept in root folder ->
subfolder-> Subfolder structure.

When I make the search with particular word it returns me the list of
matching files across the folder structure right from root to the last

I want to restrict search to specific folder only.

Is it possible with lucene?

If yes, please suggest me the steps to follow.
