Subject How to search in metadata? (filename, document title, cocument creator, ...)
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2008 14:32:13 GMT

I've a problem witch searching. I need to search not only in file contents,
but also in metadata. But I don't know how to do it. My code:

Document doc = new Document();
doc.add(new Field("contents", new FileReader(f)));
QueryParser parser = new QueryParser("contents", new StandardAnalyzer());
Query q = parser.parse(list.get(i));
Hits hits =;

Everything is ok, it searches document's contents. But how to search for
example in filenames? I I add this:

doc.add(new Field("filename", f.getCanonicalPath(), Field.Store.YES,

it doesn't work. Same problem is searching in metadata...Anyone knows how to
do it? I browsed whole google 3 hours, but found nothing, not even just one
working example, simple nothing....Thanx a lot.
