I'm using the german-analyzer without problems. Letters like ä,ü,ö are can be Searched. Maybe something in your code. Can you post some lines?
i use the GermanAnalyzer. But i believe that this analyzer isn´t working correct or i make an error in my code.
For indexing and searching i take of course the same (German-) analyzer.
But if i search for e.g.:
then i have no results. When i take the standardanalyzer for indexing and searching, then the documents are found.
Do i need another (german-) steemer?
Or what could be wrong? Is this a bug in the germananalyzer?
