The stop-words.xml folder can be accessed under
<SearchBlox Installation Path>/webapps/ROOT/stopwords/
This folder includes a variety of languages. Edit your language .xml by adding, updating, and deleting stop-words for your indexing specification. After making changes please restart the SearchBlox instance and clear and reindex the collection for the changes to take effect.
Stop-words are defined as non-information-bearing words. Words such as the, and, a, is, and on are on the stop-word list. When indexing and searching, these words will be ignored. Each language has its own stop-word list. In order to save disk space or to speed up search results, most search engines do not consider these common words.
