Subject Re: Why dismax isn't the default with 1.4 and why it doesn't support fuzzy search ?
Date Wed, 02 Sep 2009 00:44:07 GMT
: The wiki says "As of Solr 1.3, the DisMaxRequestHandler is simply the
: standard request handler with the default query parser set to the
: DisMax Query Parser (defType=dismax).". I just made a checkout of svn
: and dismax doesn't seems to be the default as :

that paragraph doesn't say that dismax is the "default handler" ... it 
says that using qt=dismax is the same as using qt=standard with the " 
query parser" set to be the DisMaxQueryParser (using defType=dismax)

so doing this replacement on any URL...

    qt=dismax   =>  qt=standard&defTYpe=dismax

...should produce identical results.

: Secondly, I've patched solr with
: as I would like to have
: fuzzy with dismax. I built it with "ant example". Now, behavior is
: still the same, no fuzzy search with dismax (using the qt=dismax
: parameter in GET URL).

questions/discussion of uncommitted patches is best done in the Jira issue 
wherey ou found the patch ... that way it helps other people evaluate the 
patch, and the author of the patch is more likelye to see your feedback.
