Subject Re: restrict fuzzy search to longer words

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your help. I was just checking to see if my solr/lucene developer understands this.
He's in India.
He says this takes place at the time of integration. Is that correct?

No idea about solr, but in lucene if you build your own FuzzyQuery via
new FuzzyQuery(...) all the constructors take a Term so you could skip
short terms.  But there doesn't appear to be anything built in.  If
you are using the query parser you could probably make your own
subclass of that that used your own subclass of FuzzyQuery that
skipped short terms.  You could also use the latter hypothetical
subclass if creating queries via new xxxQuery(....) calls.

fuzzy search to only analyze words that have more than 5 characters and to ignore words with
less than that (i.e. less than 6 character words)?
