[jira] Commented: (LUCENE-588) Escaped wildcard character in wildcard term not handled correctly

Tim Allison (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-588?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12928220#action_12928220 ]

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-588:
------------------------------------

bq. People wouldn't be escaping wildcards and expecting them to still be treated as wildcards, so IMO back compat has no value here.

Ok, i would prefer to not create a mess and just change the behavior: add support for this to WildcardQuery and
the QP (it is a trivial change there), and fix the reversing in Solr.

I'll make a patch.

> If an escaped wildcard character is specified in a wildcard query, it is treated as a wildcard instead of a literal.
> e.g., t\??t is converted by the QueryParser to t??t - the escape character is discarded.
