Subject Re: 'OR' search using Automaton query
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2016 10:11:50 GMT
Yes, just use Operations.union to merge each of your OR'd automata
into a single one, and then search on that automaton.

But remember that leading wildcard searches are tremendously costly:
they require a full scan of all terms in the index.
