Subject SpanNearQuery, Multiple Fields
Date Thu, 12 May 2016 19:35:31 GMT
I'm very interested in SpanNearQuery, because it allows for quite 
powerful phrasal searching.

However, unlike BooleanQuery, there doesn't seem to be any way to have 
it search multiple fields.

I thought I might be able to wrap multiple SpanNearQueries, each of them 
searching a different field, in an outer SpanOrQuery, but that raises an 

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Clauses must have same field.

So, is there any way to do what I'd like to do?  Would it require 
performing multiple search operations, once per field, and then 
combining the results from those multiple queries?
