Escaping should work.  See and
QueryParser.escape().  And you need to be sure that your analyzer
isn't removing the plus signs and that you use the same analyzer for
indexing and searching.

Googling for something like "lucene escape" will find you more info.

Luke will tell you what is actually in your index.

tried escaping the ++ with slashes but it's still stripping it off.  I could replace + with
"plus", is that the best way to do it?  How come escaping isn't working?
