Subject Re: Missing tokens

Here's my field description. I mentioned 'contents' field in my original
post. I've changed it to a different field, 'summary'. It's using the
'text' fieldType as you can see below.

   <field name="summary" type="text" indexed="true" stored="true"/>

<fieldType name="text" class="solr.TextField" positionIncrementGap="100">
      <analyzer type="index">
        <tokenizer class="solr.WhitespaceTokenizerFactory"/>
        <!-- in this example, we will only use synonyms at query time
        <filter class="solr.SynonymFilterFactory"
synonyms="index_synonyms.txt" ignoreCase="true" expand="false"/>
        <!-- Case insensitive stop word removal.
             enablePositionIncrements=true ensures that a 'gap' is left to
             allow for accurate phrase queries.
        <filter class="solr.StopFilterFactory"
        <filter class="solr.WordDelimiterFilterFactory" generateWordParts=
"1" generateNumberParts="1" catenateWords="1" catenateNumbers="1"
catenateAll="0" splitOnCaseChange="1"/>
        <filter class="solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory"/>
        <filter class="solr.EnglishPorterFilterFactory" protected=
        <filter class="solr.RemoveDuplicatesTokenFilterFactory"/>
      <analyzer type="query">
        <tokenizer class="solr.WhitespaceTokenizerFactory"/>
        <filter class="solr.SynonymFilterFactory" synonyms="synonyms.txt"
ignoreCase="true" expand="true"/>
        <filter class="solr.StopFilterFactory" ignoreCase="true" words=
        <filter class="solr.WordDelimiterFilterFactory" generateWordParts=
"1" generateNumberParts="1" catenateWords="0" catenateNumbers="0"
catenateAll="0" splitOnCaseChange="1"/>
        <filter class="solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory"/>
        <filter class="solr.EnglishPorterFilterFactory" protected=
        <filter class="solr.RemoveDuplicatesTokenFilterFactory"/>

I parsed the pdf using pdfbox. I can see my alphanumeric search term 'OB10'
in the extracted text before I add it to the index. I can also go into Luke
and see the 'OB10' in the contents of the 'summary' field even though Luke
can't find it when I do a search.

I can also use the browser to do a search in http://localhost/solr/admin
and again that search term doesn't return any results. I thought it may be
an alphanumber word splitting issue, but that doesn't seem be be the case
since I can search on ME26, and it returns a doc, and in fact, I can see
the 'OB10' search term in the summary field of the doc returned.

Here's a snippet of the summary field from that returned doc

To produce a downloadable file using a format suitable
for OB10. 8-26 Profiles

I'm thinking that the extracted text from pdfbox may have hidden chars that
solr can't parse. However, before I go down that road, I just want to be
sure I'm not making schoolboy errors with my solr setup.

Can you share with us how your schema looks for this field? What FieldType?
What tokenizer and analyser?
How do you parse the PDF document? Before submitting to Solr? With what
How do you do the query? Do you get the same results when doing the query
from a browser, not SolrJ?
