Subject Re: not indexing analyzed field
Date Fri, 26 Nov 2010 14:54:37 GMT
Hi Erik,

I see my problem, caused by a misunderstanding of the indexing by lucene.
I guess its due to the fact that FAST Data Search has real processing pipelines.

Youre right I use Solr but, as a matter of fact, in this special case
I really want to change the indexed _and_ stored data.
For security reasons I have to MD5 or even better SHA256 strings which
go into a field. So where is the sense if I SHA256 the string but
still display the plain text of the stored field?

So the Analyzer or Filter should MessageDigest the content and index and
store it as MessageDigest.

Can this be achived somehow with Analyzer or Filter,
what is your opinion?

May be a hint which classes to use?

Kind regards,
