However, on the query side I am building up a complex BooleanQuery from other BooleanQuerys and/or PhraseQuerys on several fields. None of these require specifying an analyzer anywhere. This is causing some odd results, I think, because a different analyzer (or no analyzer?) is being used for the query.

To do this, I simply pass the string value of the complex query to the QueryParser.parse() method to get the new query. Something like this:

you can just use the analyzer directly like this:
Analyzer analyzer = new SnowballAnalyzer(Version.LUCENE_30, "English");
TokenStream stream = analyzer.tokenStream("title", new
CharTermAttribute termAttr = stream.addAttribute(CharTermAttribute.class);
BooleanQuery q = new BooleanQuery();
q.addClause(new BooleanClause(Occur.MUST, new Term("title",
you also have access to the token positions if you want to create
phrase queries etc. just add a PositionIncrementAttribute like this:
PositionIncrementAttribute posAttr =
pls. doublecheck the code it's straight from the top of my head.
