Search query templates

The FTS query language supports query templates. These are intended to help when building application specific searches.

A template is a query but with additional support to specify template substitution.

%field
Insert the parse tree for the current ftstest and replace all references to fields in the current parse tree with the supplied field.
%(field1, field2)
%(field1 field2)
(The comma is optional.) Create a disjunction, and for each field, add the parse tree for the current ftstest to the disjunction, and then replace all references to fields in the current parse tree with the current field from the list.
Name Template Example Query Expanded Query
t1 %cm:name t1:n1 cm:name:n1
t1 %cm:name t1:"n1" cm:name:"n1"
t1 %cm:name ~t1:n1^4 ~cm:name:n1^4
t2 %(cm:name, cm:title) t2:"woof" (cm:name:"woof" OR cm:title:"woof")
t2 %(cm:name, cm:title) ~t2:woof^4 (~cm:name:woof OR ~cm:title:woof)^4
t3 %cm:name AND my:boolean:true t3:banana (cm:name:banana AND my:boolean:true)

Templates can refer to other templates.

nameAndTitle -> %(cm:name, cm:title)
nameAndTitleAndDesciption -> %(nameAndTitle, cm:description)
