Subject Re: Upgrading 1.4 to 2.0 - Indexing Issue.
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2006 16:23:52 GMT

Well I figured it out...

After getting Luke I was able to see that the values were all being indexed
correctly.  The problem came when take the ids from the index and running it
agains the database.  It was in fact searching the db on the Lucene indices
instead of the db index.  A simple parse and it works.

I would like to thank you for your help.
