Exact Phrase and Boolean Searches

If you combine an exact phrase search for multiple phrases (in which the individual phrases are framed by quotation marks) with a Boolean search, HPE IDOL Server obeys the Boolean rules while it processes the exact phrase search. To ensure that Boolean operators tie to an entire phrase, enclose the phrase in brackets. For example:

action=Query&Text=("Egyptian cats")+AND+("Phoenician sailors")

This query returns only documents that match the phrase Egyptian cats, as well as the phrase Phoenician sailors (after stemming and stopping).

action=Query&Text=("Egyptian cats")+NOT+("Phoenician sailors")

This query returns only documents that match the phrase Egyptian cats, but not the phrase Phoenician sailors (after stemming and stopping).
