Others on the list may have a more efficient method, but that'd be straightforward.

Subject: docFreq of a Boolean query (LUCENE 4.3)


I know how to get the docFreq of a term in a single field (say "content" field)

int docFreqInIndex = indexReader.docFreq(new Term("content", q));

But is it possible to get the docFreq of a boolean query consisting of matches across two
or more fields? For instance, 

BooleanQuery booleanQuery = new BooleanQuery();
booleanQuery.add(new BooleanClause(new TermQuery(new Term("content", q)) , Occur.MUST));
booleanQuery.add(new BooleanClause(new TermQuery(new Term("publisher", q2)) , Occur.MUST));

docFreq API does not accept a booleanQuery. 

docFreqInIndex = indexReader.docFreq(booleanQuery);

what would be the best solution to this?
thank you
