Subject Re: Neuter fields in query
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 15:03:51 GMT
Golleeee, Mark, it sounds like we're working on very similar projects <G>. I
solved something similar by storing the relevant parts of the original query
away ahead of time in a format suitable for using with the MemoryIndex. It
was lots easier to handle that way in my app, since I got in unfielded data
(entries on a form) that I had to map to one or more fields in my index
anyway, so it was just pretty much the raw query. All the manipulations I
had to do to make things work out (implied proximity and stemming with exact
matches etc....) were handled by throwing the raw query at the same
parser/analyzer for the MemoryIndex that I used originally with (you guessed
it) no fields in the query and just letting it default to the only field in
my MemoryIndex.....

Don't know if this helps or not.
