My name is Cameron VandenBerg, and I am a research programmer at Carnegie Mellon University. We use Lucene for projects and classwork here, and one feature we have always added to our own code, which extends the EnglishAnalyzer, is a setStemmer
method and use that stemmer in the createComponents method.
Is it possible to add this feature to the EnglishAnalyzer? If so, what steps can we take?
* Control whether and how stemming is done. See StemmerType.
