Subject Re: Query expansion
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2016 12:29:13 GMT
I am overriding getFieldQuery(String field, String fieldText,boolean
quoted). And in case of phrase query,

getFieldQuery(String field, String queryText, int slop) will be called.

And prefix query will not be my use case. So, we can ignore prefix query.

Assume this is my only case. Sequence of words (apple orange mango) as
input, and i need result for (apple~ orange~  mango~).

And I use default conjunction operator as AND (parser.setDefaultOperator(
QueryParser.Operator.AND)) for providing better relevance in results.

That method works as I expected. Is there any drawbacks of using this?

And is there any better method to expand query like this?
