Using Hierarchical Fields
Original question from
URL: http://issues.apache.org/eyebrowse/ReadMsg?listNameemail@example.com&msgNo=7507 Each document I index has an array of categories which looks like the following example....
/Biology/Fluids/Blood/ etc. Anyway, there's a couple things I'm trying to deal with. 1- The fact that we have an undefined array size. I can't just shove these into a single field. I could explode them into multiple fields on the fly like category_1, category_2. etc. etc
2- The fact that a search will need to be performed like "category:/Science/Medicine/*" would need to return all items within that category.

- Note: Be careful of the analyzer you use.
Could you put them all into a tab-delimited string and store that as a single field, then use a TabTokenizer on the field to search?
