    Problem using full text search

    K Ho Newbie

      I am new to modeshape and interested in its capability. I am using the repository example and extended it to add a search function like the following:


      public void query(String sourceName) throws Exception {

              Session session = createSession(sourceName);


              // Obtain the query manager for the session ...

              QueryManager queryManager = session.getWorkspace().getQueryManager();


              // Create a query object ...

              String language = this.userInterface.getQueryLang();

              String expression = this.userInterface.getQueryExpr();

              Query query = queryManager.createQuery(expression,language);


              // Execute the query and get the results ...

              QueryResult result = query.execute();


              // Iterate over the nodes in the results ...

              javax.jcr.NodeIterator nodeIter = result.getNodes();

              while ( nodeIter.hasNext() ) {

                  Node node = nodeIter.nextNode();

                  System.out.println("Found matching node: path = " + node.getPath());



              // Or iterate over the rows in the results ...

              String[] columnNames = result.getColumnNames();

              RowIterator rowIter = result.getRows();

              int count = 0;

              while ( rowIter.hasNext() ) {


                  Row row = rowIter.nextRow();

                  // Iterate over the column values in each row ...

                  /* Value[] values = row.getValues();

                  for ( Value value : values ) {

                      System.out.println("Row:" + count + " Value:" + value.getString());

                  } */

                  // Or access the column values by name ...

                  for ( String columnName : columnNames ) {

                      Value value = row.getValue(columnName);

                      System.out.println("Row:" + count + " Column:" + columnName + " Value:" + value.getString());




              // When finished, close the session ...




      This is pretty much straight from the example in the documentation with the missing pieces substituted with println. It works fine if I use language as JCR-SQL2 and type a query like "select * from [nt:file] where 'jcr:createdBy'='Fred'". However, if I use language Search for full text search with an expression of 'Fred', it failed with the following error:


      There has been an error processing your command

      I tried using different sources (JPA Source, Filesystem Source) and received the same error. I must have missing some configuration but I just couldn't figure it out.
