I've just released version 1.7 of CQL-Java, the open-source CQL parser for Java. As usual, it can be downloaded from: http://zing.z3950.org/cql/java/ Thanks to Ralph for his contributions to this one. -- 1.7 Tue Jul 27 17:35:25 BST 2010 - Patch from Ralph LeVan to recognise "qualifier.dc.creator"-like properties as well as "index.dc.creator" -- backwards compatible with version prior to 1.0 as well as those subsequent. - Reinstate the "exact" relation even when v1.2 is in effect (the default), despite its removal from v1.2 of CQL. In practice, it seems to be in fairly widespread use, and little real purpose is served in removing it. Enjoy!
