Subject RE: question about StandardAnalyzer, differences between solr 1.4 and solr 3.3
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 14:05:26 GMT
Looking at the Wiki  ( ), it looks
like the solr.StandardTokenizerFactory changed with Solr 3.1 .

We use solr.KeyWordTokenizerFactory for our middle names (and then also throw in solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory
to normalize to lower case).  It treats the entire field as a single token, and in general
doesn't "futz" with what came in.

You might try the analyzer panel on the admin web page to see what exactly is happening during
indexing and analysis.

Subject: question about StandardAnalyzer, differences between solr 1.4 and solr 3.3


I have a simple field defined like this:
    <fieldtype name="text" class="solr.TextField">
      <analyzer class="org.apache.lucene.analysis.standard.StandardAnalyzer"/>

Which I use here:
   <field name="middlename" type="text" indexed="true" stored="true" required="false" />

In solr 1.4, I could do:

And I was getting all documents where middlename = A or where middlename starts by the letter

In solr 3.3, I get only results where middlename starts by the letter A but not where middlename
is equal to A.

The thing is this happens only with the letter A, with other letters, it is fine, I get the
ones starting by the letter and the ones equal to the letter. My guess is that it considers
A as the English article but I do not specify any filter with stopwords so how come the behaviour
with the letter A is different from the other letters? Is there a bug? How can I change my
field to work with the letter A, the same way it does with other letters.
