Assuming you are using StandardAnalyzer, the default stop words are:

public static final String[] STOP_WORDS = {
"a", "and", "are", "as", "at", "be", "but", "by",
"for", "if", "in", "into", "is", "it",
"no", "not", "of", "on", "or", "s", "such",
"t", "that", "the", "their", "then", "there", "these",
"they", "this", "to", "was", "will", "with"

Your "state" field must not be built with StandardAnalyzer or ON would
have been removed by the analyzer when you created the field. It looks
like you will need to use lower level APIs than QueryParser to create your
Query object or don't use the default stop words.
I am not using the queryParser, but instead a booleanQuery and the state
field is queried trough a termQuery. So the StandardAnalyzer should not
stop the "ON" string because it should not be used on that field by my
request. I changed my index building so not to use a "text" document on
that field, but a "keyword" document instead and nothing has changed, still
got the 0 results with state:on in my request.

Any other idea ?

Subject: Is the searched string 'on' a special case ?

I have an index wtih many fields, and specially, one for company name and
one for state.

When I search for :

I get 114 results from 2 states, HI (Hawaii) and ON (Ontario).

If I search for :
+state:hi +company:"inc"~100

I get 7 results for Hawaii.

But when I search for:
+state:on +company:"inc"~100

I get no results at all for Ontario.

So what is going on ? I tried with many other states and all are working,
but not 'on'.
Is 'on' a special case ? Like on/off ?
