Subject Lucene fields not analyzed
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 07:26:45 GMT

i have a field that stores names of people. i have used the NOT_ANALYZED
parameter to index the names.

this is what happens during indexing

    doc.add(new Field("name", "\"" + name + "\"", Field.Store.YES,

when i search it, i create a query parser using standardanalyzer and append
~0.5 to the search query.

the problem is that if the indexed name is "Mr. Kumar", my search does not
work for "Mr. Kumar" while it does work for "Mr.Kumar" (without the space).

// searching code
        File index_directory = new File(INDEX_DIR_PATH);
        IndexReader reader =, true);
        Searcher searcher = new IndexSearcher(reader);

        Analyzer analyzer = new StandardAnalyzer(Version.LUCENE_CURRENT);

        QueryParser parser = new QueryParser(Version.LUCENE_CURRENT, "name",

        Query query;
        query = parser.parse(text + "~0.5");

how to make it work?
