Subject Re: No wildcards with solr.ASCIIFoldingFilterFactory?

Thank you Mark!

Do you know the name of this special analyzer? (The link to Lucene API is

It would be very helpful for us. We are working with material in 12
different slavic languages (plus some West European languages) and would
like to unify our search (as far as possible). The ASCIIFoldingFilterFactory
or ISOLatin1AccentFilterFactory works very fine for this purpose, but the
problem is, the very powerfull query syntax possibilities of Lucene/Solr are
getting lost. Any suggestion how to solve this problem are welcomed.


Wildcard queries are not analyzed, so you are getting what you type - 
which doesnt match what went through an analyzer and into the index. I 
don't think Solr has a solution for this at the moment. I think Lucene 
has a special analyzer with deals with this to some degree, but I have 
never used it.
