Subject Re: two fields, the first important than the second
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2012 03:17:46 GMT
sorry for some typos.
original query +(title:hello desc:hello) +(title:world desc:world)
boosted one   +(title:hello^2 desc:hello) +(title:world^2 desc:world)
last one     +(title:hello desc:hello) +(title:world desc:hello)
   (+title:hello +title:world)^10 (+desc:hello +desc:world)^5

the example has two terms. if it has more terms, the query will become too
