Subject dismax and query analysis
Date Thu, 29 Oct 2009 11:39:46 GMT


Can someone clarify how dismax queries work under the hood? I couldn't work
this particular point out from the documentation...

I get that they pretty much issue the user's query against all of the fields
in the schema -- or rather, all of the fields you've specified in the qf
parameter in the config or the request.

But, does each of these 'sub'-queries get analyzed according to the normal
analysis rules for the field it's getting sent to? Or are they passed
through verbatim?

I'm hoping it's the former, as we have a variety of different field types
with radically different tokenization and filtering...

Also, is there any plan to implement wildcards in dismax, or is this

Thanks once again :-)
