Subject Re: regarding comparing texts using Lucene
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2018 13:37:21 GMT
Hi Veda,

Lucene doesn't provide such functionality out of the box, but you could use
MoreLikeThis (
to search for similar documents and then compute a finer-grained similarity
score on client-side. This would avoid having to compute a similarity score
with every document of your collection.
