Subject Re: questions about searching lucene 3.2
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2011 06:29:50 GMT
As far as I understand you have 2 different problems.

1. search and 2.4 index with 3.2 code using standard analyzer.
in this case you should either reindex or pass Version.LUCENE_24 to
the StandardAnalyzer ctor that should help here.

2. search a string with parentheses with the query parser
you should escape you query string with QueryParser#escape before searching.

maybe I am misssing something, let me know if thats the case.
