Subject FW: Difference Between Tokenizer and filter
Date Wed, 02 Mar 2016 09:00:02 GMT
Hi Team,

Can you please clarify the below. My understanding is tokenizer is used to say how the content
should be indexed physically in file system. Filters are used to query result. The blow lines
are from my setup. But I have seen eg that include filters inside <analyzer type=”index”>
and tokenizer in <analyzer type=”query”> that confused me.

                <fieldType name="customSearch" class="solr.TextField" positionIncrementGap="100"
                                <analyzer type="index">
                                   <tokenizer class="solr.LowerCaseTokenizerFactory"/>
                                   <tokenizer class="solr.StandardTokenizerFactory"/>
                                   <tokenizer class="solr.NGramTokenizerFactory" minGramSize="2"
                                <analyzer type="query">
                                   <filter class="solr.NGramFilterFactory" minGramSize="2"

My goal is to user solr and find the best match among the technology names e.g
Actual tech name

1.       Microsoft Visual Studio

2.       Microsoft Internet Explorer

3.       Microsoft Visio

When user types Microsoft Visal Studio user should get Microsoft Visual Studio. Basically
misspelled and jumble words should match closest tech name
