Hello Wolfgang and all!

I am using the open source native xml database eXist which offers
index-based full text search.

My question is whether I can combine for instance the following two queries
into one or if I have to perform to queries and then merge the results?

for $doc in //text/body/abstract &= 'searchTerm' 
return $doc/../..

for $doc in //text/body/metadata1 &= 'searchTerm' 
return $doc/../..

Thank you for your help!

Best wishes,
