Subject Re: newbie question on querying on multiple attributes
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2008 15:57:44 GMT
Consider the use of the ClassBridge in Hibernate Search. Very useful. It
basically allows you to merge multiple fields of your hibernate entity into
a single lucene field. Once this is done, you can query this single field
from lucene without the need for BooleanQuery.
