Subject Scoring based on document
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2012 21:25:38 GMT
I am using DefaultSimilarity and did not boost any field while indexing. My index is comprised
of the following fields:

-          Title

-          Author

-          Bookname

-          Description

All of the 4 fields are indexed and can be searched on by the user. Now let's say the user
searches for "oracle" in Title field, the score is computed based on the Title field only,
and its disregarding the frequency of the term "oracle" in other fields. It might be like
that by design but I need to change it so that the documents are ranked based on the frequency
in the whole document and not based on the field searches. Please help!

Thanks in advance
