Subject Re: Unusual scoring
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 09:26:03 GMT
 DisjunctionMaxQuery may be one you are looking for.
   *This is useful when searching for a word in multiple fields with
different boost factors (so that the fields cannot be combined equivalently
into a single search field). We want the primary score to be the one
associated with the highest boost, not the sum of the field scores (as
BooleanQuery would give)*

Thanks & Regards
