JQL Query parser


How to perform the partial or full text search from the lucene index directory using JQL functionality.

Ex: issue in mymethod("fieldname","testing")

The above method has to return all the fields whichever contains the word "testing".

Here is my code:

Term term = new Term("fieldname", "testing");

Query query = new TermQuery(term);

The above code is returning only when the field contains "testing". It is not searching the whole sentence.

I tried below one for partinal search

Term term = new Term("fieldname", "test*");

Query query = new WildcardQuery(term);

The above one is not supporting the uppercase. If i give "TEST*" its not giving anything eventhough i have fields in index.

Moreover it searches only the starting word, not the whole sentence

Is there any wrong in that? or will the lucene search provide this functionality?

Any suggestion from the experts?

I'm confused. Are you trying to use JQL in your code, or is your code trying to search the index directly? You seem to be trying to do both at the same time, which is nonsense - you either use JQL and let the back-end handle it, or you write code that directly accesses the index (and hence JQL is pointless because it's not for searching lucene)
