Nutch syntax query doesn't support wildcards. This will be changed soon in Nutch trunk, where we will delegate query parsing to a particular type of search backend (e.g. Solr). > > Looks like the Lucene Query object does provide this, however nutch's > distributed search does not.

Use Nutch for crawling and indexing to Solr, and then use Solr directly for searching. -- Best regards, Andrzej Bialecki <>< ___. ___ ___ ___ _ _ __________________________________ [__ || __|__/|__||\/| Information Retrieval, Semantic Web ___|||__|| \| || | Embedded Unix, System Integration http://www.sigram.com Contact: info at sigram dot com
