Yes, use following code MultiFieldMultiQueryParser, it is not importet in
cvs Apache Lucene,
i will do this next, but you can use your own

multi Field wioth multi query

package  org.apache.lucene.queryParser;

import java.util.List;

import org.apache.lucene.analysis.Analyzer;
import org.apache.lucene.queryParser.CharStream;
import org.apache.lucene.queryParser.QueryParser;
import org.apache.lucene.queryParser.QueryParserTokenManager;

 * A QueryParser which constructs queries to search multiple fields.
 * @author <a href="">Senel Oezdemir</a>
 * @version $Revision: 1.3 $
public class MultiFieldMultiQueryParser extends QueryParser 

    public MultiFieldMultiQueryParser(QueryParserTokenManager tm)

    public MultiFieldMultiQueryParser(CharStream stream)

    public MultiFieldMultiQueryParser(String f, Analyzer a)
        super(f, a);

	public static Query parse(List query, List fields, List flags,
Analyzer analyzer) throws Exception{
		BooleanQuery bQuery = new BooleanQuery();
		Query q = null;
		System.out.println("BEGIN QUERY");
		for (int i = 0; i <  fields.size(); i++)
			//if( ( fields.get(i) != null ) || (query.get(i) !=
null) ){
			if( query.get(i) != null ){	
					System.out.println(fields.get(i) + "
: " + query.get(i));
					q = parse((String) query.get(i),
(String) fields.get(i), analyzer);
				}catch(Exception e ){e.printStackTrace();}
				int flag;
				if ( ((Boolean) flags.get(i)).booleanValue()
== true ){
					flag = 0;
				}else {
					flag = 1;
				switch ( flag )
					case 0:
						bQuery.add(q, true, false);
					case 1:
						bQuery.add(q, false, false);
					/** not supported
						bQuery.add(q, false, true);
						bQuery.add(q, false, false);
			System.out.println("END QUERY");
			return bQuery;

    Can u pl. clarify some more how to use the BooleanQuery class as I am
clueless still.
As far as I can gather it deals with multiple query terms and not with
searching a (may be single) given query term in multiple (indexed) fields.

Now, a query can be posed to search in the indexed fields but the Hits class
object can have only one query object and the query class similarly can have
only one field on which the query is performed.

different query objects, then pl. respond.
