Hello, i integrate zend lucene in my symfony application and i try to searching word... i have see that if i try to search a single character whith a wilcards (for example: a*) zend search lucene broke... I try to understand if this is only my problem or if is a zend_search_lucene problem, and i've try on your zend framework site:

if you search "a*" the result is a blank page....…

in a devzone too:*

This is because default behavior of Zend_Search_Lucene throws an exception if you search with wildcard character not followed by 3 non wild card characters.

You should catch this exception and handle it.


<pre class="highlight"> 
// Fail
$results = $index->find("a*"); //At least 3 non-wildcard characters are required at the beginning of pattern.

$results = $index->find("aa*"); //At least 3 non-wildcard characters are required at the beginning of pattern.

$results = $index->find("aaa*");

Works as designed. Exception is thrown due to 3 non wildcard characters before wildcard.

Have you found an issue?
