    Default Maximum Length of A field in Lucene

    Is there a limit on any field's length in a document in lucene? I have a field of length 400196 (thats large as it basically appends many fields, and I don't want to be using MultiField Queries)... Now, if I search giving any text that is present in the later parts of the field, it never shows up in the results. On opening the index with Luke, and using the "Reconstruct and Edit" feature, the Tokenized tab from the particular field only shows the content from the first 10000 characters or so. Any suggestions?

    You have to set field's length by doing this:
    IndexWriter iwriter = new IndexWriter(directory, analyzer, true, IndexWriter.MaxFieldLength.UNLIMITED);

    Hope this helps.
