I am using lucene for text search. I am facing one problem. Please help me in this query:

I want to get name of persons who work for IBM and Oracle or IBM and Infosys. In other words, the person must work for IBM and Oracle/Infosys. I don't want to write logic for this, I am looking for just 1/2 line query like IBM AND Oracle OR IBM AND Infosys. but this is not working.

The code is as follows:

The Lucene Query Syntax allows parens for grouping. Would one of these work?

(IBM AND Oracle) OR (IBM AND Infosys)
IBM AND ( Oracle OR Infosys )

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
