      Description

      This is an enhancement to the DisjunctionMaxQueryParser to work on all the query variants such as wildcard, prefix, and fuzzy queries, and to support working in "AND" scenarios that are not processed by the min-should-match DisMax QParser. This was not in Solr already because DisMax was only used for a very limited syntax that didn't use those features. In my opinion, this makes a more suitable base parser for general use because unlike the Lucene/Solr parser, this one supports multiple default fields whereas other ones (say Yonik's

      {!prefix}

      one for example, can't do dismax). The notion of a single default field is antiquated and a technical under-the-hood detail of Lucene that I think Solr should shield the user from by on-the-fly using a DisMax when multiple fields are used.
      (patch to be attached soon)
