WebCenter Content 11g and 12c

The WCC is configured for Oracle Text - OTS.

When doing a Matches search on a metadata field, the search results will show the same content as a Contains search.

As an example:

The WCC has a custom field, TEST1.

Item1 has the field value set as ABCD.

Item2 has the value set as ABCD EFGH.

Item3 have the value set as ABCD EFGH IJKL.

A Matches search for ABCD on TEST1 will return all three items.

Since it's a matches, it's expected that only Item1 would be returned.
