Splitting words or other meta-data into searchable terms is the best approach,
taking full advantage of the Lucene data structure and offering the best search
speed.  But it is not always possible to know, ahead of time, how the words or
meta-data should be parsed and split, or from what terms the end-user will want
to construct their search.  In those cases wildcards provide a slower, but
workable solution.

I too highly recommend "Lucene in Action"; though its java-based
unit-test examples might be confusing for less experienced developers.

Lucene is a full text search engine, so it index the full words. If
you want to search within words you must index all the posibles search
terms with the proper analyzer.

I suggest you to take a look to the lucene in action book to
understand how the full text index searchs work.

to get lucene to search within words. If its not possible for lucene to do this
search, please can someone let me know
