Subject RE: dismax query handler ignoring qf entirely!
Date Mon, 05 May 2008 18:42:49 GMT
I think the problem is that 'cat' is of type 'string' and we're querying
as though it was type 
'text'.  We get expected results only when we quote the query string,
otherwise the query string is goes through stemming and, after that, no
longer quite matches the literal string in the 'cat' field.  Is that
possible bug in the filter logic- shouldn't both the original query
string and the stemmed version get through, or is that a feature and we
must supply quotes on a string to by-pass stemming?

Unless I'm not understanding what you are saying, then no, this is not
expected behaviour - DisMax doesn't rely on one copying the actual field
data to a "text" field.
