Subject How to perform Wildcard search when using WhitespaceAnalyzer?
Date Mon, 18 Nov 2013 03:14:17 GMT
Hi All,

Sorry to repeat this question from my previous mail chain, but I am hoping the modified subject
will catch someone's attention - in case they are familiar with this situation.

Could any one please suggest if it is possible to perform Leading and / or trailing wildcard
searches using WhitespaceAnalyzer? I was able to do such searches using StandardAnalyzer but
Lucene Search simply seems to ignore the wildcards with WhitespaceAnalyzer. The issue is also
not with the case as I have ensured that the case both in index and search terms are the same.

WhitespaceAnalyzer works well for my cause, hence I don't want to switch back to StandardAnalyzer.

////////////// Code //////////////

strBufSearchString.append("\"" + QueryParser.escape(strTxtSearchString.trim().toUpperCase())
+ "*" + "\"");

Analyzer analyzer = new WhitespaceAnalyzer(Version.LUCENE_43);

QueryParser parser = new QueryParser(Version.LUCENE_43, "CONTENTS", analyzer);

query = parser.parse(strBufSearchString.toString());


Please suggest. It is real urgent.. Appreciate any possible help!
