Dejan Nenov commented on LUCENE-72:

This makes sense. Iconcur that docs can be better - maybe we shoud lopen a separate JIRA issue on that?

I propose this to be closed as "will not fix".

> Hi.
> The problem I am having occurs when using queryparser and also when building the
> query using the API.
> Assume that we want to look for documents about fruits or vegetables but
> excluding tomatoes and bananas. I suppose the right query sould be:
> +(fruits vegetables) AND (-tomatoes -bananas)
> wich I think is equivalent to (if tou parse it and then print the query.toString
> ("") result that is what you get)
> +(fruits vegetables) +(-tomatoes -bananas)
> but the query doesn't work as expected, in fact the query that works is
> +(fruits vegetables) -(-tomatoes -bananas)
> which doesn´t really make much sense, because the second part seems to say:
> All documents where the condition "tomatoes is not present and bananas is not
> present " is false, which means the opposite.
> In fact, second query works as (even if they look quite opposite):
> +(fruits vegetables) -tomatoes -bananas
> Hope someone could help, thanks
