Yes, other special (punctuation) characters will be preserved by the white 
space analyzer, but must be escaped in query strings. You will have to 
manually escape them with a backslash, since the QueryParser.escape method 
will escape asterisk as well, which would disable wildcard query.

Subject: Re: Handling special characters in Lucene 4.0

what about other characters like '&,'( quote) characters. We have a
requirement that a text can start with 'sampletext' and when I search with a
'* it does not return any results but instead when I search with sample*, it
does return the result.

Thanks,
Ranjith,
