Subject Re: How to edit / compile the SOLR source code
Date Thu, 11 Mar 2010 23:29:59 GMT


Thanks a lot for your reply.

I was able to successfully hack the query parser and enabled the leading
wild card search.

As of today I hacked the code for this reason only, I am not sure how to
make the leading wild card search to work without hacking the code and this
type of search is the preferred type of search in our organization.

I had previously searched all over the web to find out 'why' that feature
was disabled as default but couldn't find any solid answer stating the
reason. In one of the posting in nabble it was mentioned that it might take
a performance hit if we enable the leading wild card search, can you please
let me know your comments on that?

But I am very much interested in contributing some new stuff to SOLR group
so I consider this as a starting point..
