When I search, I am not getting all the results. For instance if I search Java or SQL I know I should get at least a few results (I'm searching skill profiles of techies...).

There's nothing odd about the text I'm looking for, it is freeformat text as part of a bulleted list. I'vesearched several terms and something is definitely wrong.

The log shows:

2005-11-12 09:48:18,312 Thread-15 INFO com.ecyrd.jspwiki.search.LuceneSearchProvider - Starting Lucene reindexing, this can take a couple minutes... 2005-11-12 09:48:18,781 Thread-15 INFO com.ecyrd.jspwiki.search.LuceneSearchProvider - Full Lucene index finished in 469 milliseconds.

So I guess I am using Lucene search.

I'm happy to look into this if anyone has any ideas --AdamSmith


Can you give some example on what gets indexed and what does not?

-- JanneJalkanen


There doesn't seem to be any pattern. Is there any way to view/query the Lucene index?

I had a similar issue with the Search engine, after restarting the app. Seems that reusing the created Lucene indexes is not 100% working ok -- my search engine only seems to use the newly edited pages after that restart. --DF

Just as an idea... Do you have the jspwiki.workDir set in the jspwiki.properties file? -- JanneJalkanen


I do have the workdir set.

I have just confirmed DFs comments above. I previously only got one result for 'java'. I just edited my profile page, making no changes. Now I get two results. The point being that editing the page triggered a reindex of that page and now it works...

Interestingly (for me anyway!) the search appears to work fine on page names.

--AdamSmith

Verry strange... You should be able to work around things by removing the lucene-directory from workdir whenever you restart. Please keep us posted if you can find out anything new.

-- JanneJalkanen

I deleted the lucene directory, and restarted. This worked perfectly! --AdamSmith

Actually, not quite perfectly, the results seem better though --AdamSmith


I believe it boils down to the fact lucene does not re-index a page that has been updated. New pages are idexed straight away, but when you update that page and search for the updated text then it returns no results -- AntonyG


I have exactly the same issue, which is causing problems as I am trying to use the wiki as a knowledgebase.

Pages seem to "drop off" the indexing, and the only way to restore them is to edit the page (no actual change to the content is needed).

Worrying.

We need more information - I simply cannot reproduce this bug.
