Plucene::Search::Query(3) base class for queries


my $s_query = Plucene::Search::Query::Subclass->new({
boost => $boost_factor});
my $scorer = $s_query->scorer($query, $searcher, $reader);


This is an abstract base class for queries.

A query is a specification of the content an properties of the desired documents. Every search is done by matching a query against the document index and locating the ones that match the query.

The simplest query specifies a single term (or word) that is to be matched against a single field (e.g. 'author') of each of the documents in the index. This kind of query matches any document that contains the term in the specified field.

A more complex queries may contain nested queries with 'and', 'or', 'not' or 'phrase' relations. Queries may also contains specification of which document fields to match against the various parts of the query (.e.g. 'authors' and 'title') and hints that may effects the ranking of the matched documents ('boost' factor).
