Hi Akanksha,

You would probably get more responses on such a question if posted in the
user list.

To your question, I don't see why the current results won't be good enough.
I am not sure though what exactly you mean by saying "index also contains
the document in a
field"...  If the following are true:
  - a document added to your index has a field named "textfield"
  - that field was added to the document before the document was added to
the index
  - that field has Index.TOKENIZE
  - the text of that field is the same as that of the query
  - the field-name and analyzer passed to the query parser are the same as
that used at indexing
then you should get the expected results.

Lucene FAQ may help you here - in particular "Why am I getting no hits /
incorrect hits?".
