Synonym and Boolean Searches

If you combine a synonym search with a Boolean search, HPE IDOL Server obeys the Boolean rules while it processes the synonym query. For example:

action=Query&Text=cat+AND+dog&Synonym=True

If the synonym file contains synonyms for the terms cat and dog, HPE IDOL Server returns only documents that contain both the term cat or one of the synonyms for cat, and the term dog or one of the synonyms for dog. For example, documents that contain mouser and cur, cat and man's best friend, and so on.
