Subject Re: Find documents contained in search term

You need to use prefix query for your requirement. Below are my thoughts
and hope it helps.

Say "Hello World" is your phrase.

1. Do a phrase query with your phrase ("Hello World")
2. If not found then strip the last character and then do prefix query
("Hello Worl")
3. Continue step 2 still you get the result or the pharse is empty.

If you give examples of some sample documents in the index and search
phrase then it will help others to give better response.
