      Description

      Imagine a one-field yellow page search using eDisMax across fields

      qf=firstname middlename lastname companyname category^10.0 subcategory products address street zip city^5.0 state
      

      Now this of course works well. But what if I want to offer my users fielded search on "who", "what" and "where".
      A way to do this now is copyField into three new fields with these names. But then you lose the internal weight between the sub fields.
      A more elegant way would be allowing virtual field names mapping to multiple fields, so user can search where:london and match address, street, zip, city or state automatically.
