Pattern Analyzeredit

An analyzer of type pattern that can flexibly separate text into terms via a regular expression. Accepts the following settings:

The following are settings that can be set for a pattern analyzer type:

lowercase

Should terms be lowercased or not. Defaults to true.

pattern

The regular expression pattern, defaults to \W+.

flags

The regular expression flags.

stopwords

A list of stopwords to initialize the stop filter with. Defaults to an empty stopword list Check Stop Analyzer for more details.

IMPORTANT: The regular expression should match the token separators, not the tokens themselves.

Flags should be pipe-separated, eg "CASE_INSENSITIVE|COMMENTS". Check Java Pattern API for more details about flags options.

The regex above is easier to understand as:

  ([^\p{L}\d]+)                 # swallow non letters and numbers,
| (?<=\D)(?=\d)                 # or non-number followed by number,
| (?<=\d)(?=\D)                 # or number followed by non-number,
| (?<=[ \p{L} && [^\p{Lu}]])    # or lower case
  (?=\p{Lu})                    #   followed by upper case,
| (?<=\p{Lu})                   # or upper case
  (?=\p{Lu}                     #   followed by upper case
    [\p{L}&&[^\p{Lu}]]          #   then lower case
  )
