Subject Reg: Query behavior
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2011 18:46:54 GMT

Currently when I type in Arcos Bioscience in my lucene search, it returns all those documents
either Arcos or Bioscience at the top of the search results and the actual document containing

"Arcos Bioscience" somewhere in the middle/bottom.

The desired behavior is to rank those documents that contain the terms Arcos and Bioscience
to each other higher than those that contain either of the terms or contain both the terms
but which far
away from each other.

When I search the same term with quotes "Arcos Bioscience" in the term, it gives the exact
document that
contains the term and nothing else.

In general, how would I modify the system in such a way that the documents containing "exact
term" are shown
first and also the documents with either "exact" or "term" are shown later (without just showing
one result).
