Subject Re: MultiFieldQueryParser with default AND and stopfilter
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 15:19:04 GMT
Then surely the stop word issue is a red herring.  Using MFQP with AND
everywhere you'll never get a match if some fields don't contain all
of the search terms.

Even if Erick's exact answer won't apply, I suspect that building up a
composite boolean query is the way to go.
