Fuzzy search

Do you want to create a native client or integrate with third party applications: webservices are the solution.

IS it possible to combine a fuzzy search with a non fuzzy search using webservices?


"Application~0.7 AND Smith"

I'm having some bizarre results when I try it. (In fact, I have bizarre results with fuzzy in general!)

Sorry, but this is not possible,
but you can use some special characters like '*' (asterisk) and '+' (plus) '-' (minus) operators.

So for example you can make a query like this: "Application* +Smith"
or like this: "+Application +Smith".

One other important thing that you can specify is the language of the documents you want to retrieve and the language of your query.
