It would be useful to know how far you have got, and where you got stuck.

Are you able to run queries at all - or is it this specific query you 
are having difficulty with?

Is your problem with the query, or with the Java API?

What did you try, and how did it fail?

We need to know the answers to these questions so we can try to explain 
what to do in terms you are likely to understand.

When people have problems with the contains function it is often because 
they tried to guess what it did instead of reading the specification; 
the behaviour of a function can sometimes be guessed from its name, but 
not always.
