Class ICUTokenizerFactory

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class ICUTokenizerFactory
    extends TokenizerFactory
    implements ResourceLoaderAware
    Factory for ICUTokenizer. Words are broken across script boundaries, then segmented according to the BreakIterator and typing provided by the DefaultICUTokenizerConfig.

    To use the default set of per-script rules:

     <fieldType name="text_icu" class="solr.TextField" positionIncrementGap="100">
         <tokenizer class="solr.ICUTokenizerFactory"/>

    You can customize this tokenizer's behavior by specifying per-script rule files, which are compiled by the ICU RuleBasedBreakIterator. See the ICU RuleBasedBreakIterator syntax reference.

    To add per-script rules, add a "rulefiles" argument, which should contain a comma-separated list of code:rulefile pairs in the following format: four-letter ISO 15924 script code, followed by a colon, then a resource path. E.g. to specify rules for Latin (script code "Latn") and Cyrillic (script code "Cyrl"):

     <fieldType name="text_icu_custom" class="solr.TextField" positionIncrementGap="100">
         <tokenizer class="solr.ICUTokenizerFactory" cjkAsWords="true"
    SPI Name (case-insensitive: if the name is 'htmlStrip', 'htmlstrip' can be used when looking up the service).
