Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-813) leading wildcard's don't work with trailing wildcard
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2007 23:32:05 GMT


Doron Cohen commented on LUCENE-813:

I fixed the PREFIX definition in QueryParser.jj, changed:
         (<_TERM_START_CHAR> | "*") (<_TERM_CHAR>)* "*" >
         ("*") | ( <_TERM_START_CHAR> (<_TERM_CHAR>)* "*" ) >
which I think is more correct, and this solved the problem. 

However this caused another parsing test (testSimple) to fail - aparently from other reasons:
the standard analyzer used in that test is lower casing the query tokens, which have umlauts
- and this fails, because the lower casing is done char by char (Character.lowercase). I think
that the wrong definition of PREFIXTERM was masking this behavior before. I am not sure yet
if this is a bug, but for testSimple to pass for now I would modify the test to use a non
lowercasing analyzer when umlauts are present. Please comment if you think this is a bug.

Another tehnical issue that came up is line endings - compiling on XP, using cygwin, the javacc
result files had wrong line endings.
Fixed that with 
   perl -p -e 's/(\r\n|\n|\r)/\n/g'  QueryParser.java_fromJavacc > QueryParser,java
Do others have this problem?
Is there is a standard solution for this (other than installing *Nix?)
If not I may look into allowing to fix this by build.xml.

Will have a patch with the fix later today.

> As reported by Antony Bowesman, leading wildcards don't work when there is a trailing
wildcard character -- instead a PrefixQuery is constructed.
