Subject [jira] Created: (SOLR-140) single quote in search query will break any sorts
Date Sun, 04 Feb 2007 08:15:05 GMT
single quote in search query will break any sorts

                 Key: SOLR-140
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: search
    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
         Environment: SOLR nightly build 2007-02-01, but old builds as well.  Ubuntu 6.06
LTS server.  Tomcat 5.5.20
            Reporter: John Kleven

Query strings that contain a single quote, properly escaped, break *as soon as you add a sort

For example,
If  I want to search for the word ----   jam's   ---- 
including the single quote, I can.  But as soon as I add a sort criteria to the URL, it breaks.

Note: %27 is a single quote encoded for URI's

Here's the examples....    -- this works (i get ~20 hits back);score%20desc --- this doesn't (get 0 hits

Seems that if the first query works, it shouldn't be breakable just by telling it explicitly
to sort on score??  All other sorts break in this scenario as well ( i.e., price, etc).

email rsp from Yonik:
Hmmm, Solr tries to be smart about splitting the query from the sort
If it sees a semicolon inside quotes (single or double), or backslash
escaped, then it will treat it as part of the query.

An immediate workaround would be to query for "jam's" or jam\'s

It would be helpful if you could open a JIRA issue for this.
