Subject Fwd: Re: How can I set the defaultOperator to be AND?
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:34:02 GMT
Hi Eric & others,

Is there any way to overwrite the default OP when we use edismax?
Because adding the following line to solrconfig.xml doesn't solve the 
<solrQueryParser defaultOperator="AND"/>

(Then if I do "q=black OR white", this always gives the results for 
"black AND white")

I did not find a way to define a default OP, which is automatically 
overwritten by the AND/OR from a query.

Example - Debug: defaultOP in solrconfig = AND / q=a or b

==> results for black AND white

The correct result should be the following (but I had to force the q.op):

==> I cannot do this in case I want to do "(a AND b) OR c"...

Kind regards,
