Query regarding usage of Lucene - Filtering folders

Mohammad.Ahmed
Hi

I would like to join java-user mailing list.

I had a query regarding usage of lucene.

 

 

I have done the indexing for the files kept in root folder -> subfolder

-> subfolder structure.

 

 

When I make the search with particular word it returns me the list of
matching files across the folder structure right from root to the last
subfolder.

 

 

I want to restrict search to specific folder only.

 

Is it possible with lucene?

 

If yes, please suggest me the steps to follow.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Mohammad

Sure, but you have to make it happen. The most straight-forward thing I
can think of is to index (probably UN_TOKENIZED) the
path to the file in a new field when you index the contents.
 Then you can easily restrict things however you want by
including an AND clause with the path fragment you wish to restrict your
search to....

Best
