FAQ
Wildcards only work for a single term. At index time the underscore in
TEST_TYPE is treated as if it were a space separator, producing two terms.
At query time the existence of the wildcard suppresses ALL analysis of the
term (although that behavior may vary between query parsers), so that the
underscore is kept at query time even though StandardAnalyzer (or
WordDelimiterFilter or similar filter) would produce a text stream without
any underscores.

StandardAnalyzer lower cases its output, so there is no case sensitivity.
But, if you happen to use upper case in a wildcard query term that query
term will fail to match anything because the existence of the wildcard
suppresses all analysis, including the lowercasing. Once again, different
query parsers may behave differently.

Subject: Wildcard Case Sensitivity

Hi

Apologies up front if this question has been asked before.

I have a document which contains a field that stores an untokenized value
such as TEST_TYPE. The analyser used is StandardAnalyzer and I pass the
same analyzer into the query. I perform the following query :
fieldName:TEST_*, however this does not return any results. Is this the
expected behaviour? Can I use capital letters in my wildcard query or do i
need to do some processing before passing it to the query parser?


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Amin
