Subject Re: Problem with spaces in untokenized field using QueryParser
Date Sat, 06 Dec 2008 18:06:39 GMT

Hi Daniel. Thanks for the tip. I've decided to simply intercept query strings
starting with "tag:" (since I still want to allow users to type the query
strings) and treat them as a TermQuery, as per your suggestion, rather than
passing it to QueryParser at all, and it seems to have done the trick!
Luckily I only need to do this in one case, otherwise I'd probably have to
write a custom QueryParser.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.
