Which lucene version is in use and can it be changed?

We are using lucene in our own application and we have discovered that it is possible to make a search with a wildcard at the beginning since we use lucene 2.9.3. Can we do so in Confluence also?

Yes, you can. For details, you can refer to this Confluence Search Syntax documentation: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Search+Syntax

Sorry, but this does not answer my question. As it says on the page

(Info) Wildcards can be used anywhere within a word, except at the very beginning.

But that is exactly what we are looking for and we have learned that a newer version of Lucene can do this. So it would be nice if Confluence would use a more recent version.

Is it possible in case of JIRA also(i.e changing lucene or setting QueryParser.setAllowLeadingWildcard( true ))? my jira version is 5.0.7
