bug or feature???

Jean-Sebastien Vachon
Hi,

Can someone tell me why the two following queries do not return the same results?
Is that a bug or a feature?

http://localhost:8983/jobs/select?fq=title:(NOT janitor)&fq=description:(NOT janitor)&q=*:*

http://localhost:8983/jobs/select?q=title:(NOT janitor) AND description:(NOT janitor)


The second query returns no result while the first one returns 6097276 documents

Thanks

Your syntax looks a bit funny.

Which version of Solr are you using? Pure negative queries are not supported, try q=(*:* -title:janitor) instead.

Also, for debugging what's going on, please add &debugQuery=true and share the parsed query for both cases with us.
