I use StandardAnalyzer(english only) for indexing and not using any stemmer now.
If I index the word 'flower' and try to do a search for 'flowers', it doesn't give any result. Similarily, if I had indexed for 'attacks' and search for 'attack', it won't give any result.
In order to make this work, do I need to stem the word 'flowers' as 'flower' before indexing? OR index as 'flowers' as such and while making a search does Lucene has any provision to search for 'flower' or 'flowers'?
If so, how can it be accomplished?
Also, which stemmer can I use? snowball?
Can any one please add some code snippet for how to use it?
