Subject Re: Phrase search
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2010 22:01:56 GMT

I'm trying to match "Apple 2" but not "Apple2" using phrase search, this is why I have it
I was under the impression --when I use phrase search-- all the analyzer magic would not apply,
but it is!!!  Otherwise, how would I search for a phrase?!
Using Google, when I search for "Windows 7" (with quotes), unlike Solr, I don't get hits on
"Window7".  I want to use catenateNumbers="1" which I want it to take effect on other searches
but no phrase searches.  Is this possible ?
Yes, we are in the process of planning to upgrade to Solr 1.4.1 -- it takes time and a lot
of effort to do such an upgrade at where I work.
Thank you for your help and understanding.

Subject: Re: Phrase search

 I don't understand why i'm getting this behavior.  I was under the 
 impression if I search for "Apple 2" (with quotes and space before “2”) 
 it will give me different results vs. if I search for "Apple2" (with 
 quotes and no space before “2”), but I'm not!  Why?
if you search "Apple 2" in quotes, then the analyzer for your field gets 
he full string (with the space) and whatever it does with it and whatever 
erms it produces determs what Query gets executed.  If you search 
Apple2" (w/ or w/o quotes) then the analyzer for your field gets the full 
tring and whatever it does with it and whatever Terms it produces determs 
hat Query gets executed.
None of that changes based on the analyzer you use.
With that in mind: i relaly don't understand your question.  Let's step 
ack and instead of trying to explain *why* you are getting the results 
ou are getting (short answer: because that's how your analyzer works) 
et's ask the quetsion: what do you *want* to do?  What do you *want* to 
ee happen when you enter various query strings?
Y Problem
Your question appears to be an "XY Problem" ... that is: you are dealing
ith "X", you are assuming "Y" will help you, and you are asking about "Y"
ithout giving more details about the "X" so that we can understand the
ull issue.  Perhaps the best solution doesn't involve "Y" at all?
ee Also:
: I’m using Solr 1.2
PS: Solr 1.2 had numerous bugs which were really really bad and which were 
ixed in Solr 1.3.  Solr 1.3 had numerous bugs where were really really 
ad and were fixed in Solr 1.4.  Solr 1.4 had a couple of bugs where 
eally really bad and which were fixed in Solr 1.4.1 ... so even if you 
on't want any of hte new features, you should *REALLY* consider
