Subject Scoring question - Get Score of Best Query in BooleanQuery
Date Sun, 06 May 2007 21:03:46 GMT
Hello everyone,

Whenever I search a word in my web application, I search in some default
e.g. I search the word "hello", I generate these queries :


Which I add in a BooleanQuery  (BooleanClause.Occur.SHOULD)

What I want to achieve is getting the score of the query that matches the
word entered, and return that score.
(e.g. hello was found in the summary, return the score of summary:hello,
and not the score of "title:hello headlines:hello summary:hello
(it should first look into my title field , then headlines , then summary,

The problem is that my score is pretty low (and getting lower if I add more
fields in which to search)
and I tought that it is more obvious to return the best score of the best
query in my BooleanQuery.

I hope I was clear and that anyone here can help me in achieving this,
Thank u for any support.
