    Default Highlighting with exact match

    I have a need to use lucene for snippet generation and highlighting. I would like to be able to find and highlight exact matches within a document. For example if one searches for "oracle 8i" I do not want to highlight the word oracle. I only want to highlight "oracle 8i" without the quotes. I am not using lucene as my search engine. Another system has already found the document and lucene is only responsible for highlighting and generating a snippet from the found text.

    When using the SimpleAnalyzer, lucene treats each word as a term and highlights every word individually. I do not get any matches using KeywordAnalyzer.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Since you already have the results, wont it be simpler to use String.indexOf and String.replaceAll ?

    Let us know.

    I agree that simplest way is the best way.

    The requirement is more than just hightlighting text.

    I also need to generate highlight fragments / snippets for the document which the highlighting extensions do.
