    1. We use Oracle 11 and it is case sensitive
    2. B - for a CQ search in a query condition for a specific field
    3. We use the full text search and it is case insensitive - we nned this also for CQ queries

    Requesting clarifications please:

    1) What is your current DB vendor platform and collation (is it case sensitive)?
    2) You mention several use cases where case sensitivity/insensitivity may matter to you. Please clarify which if all/any you meant:
    A) list box selections in CQ Web (when picking from a choice list)
    B) Searching in a query operator in a CQ query upon a specific field
    C) Full-Text Search of a specific field (field restricted search)
    D) Full-Text Search Type Ahead feature on a choice list that is by reference
    3) Do you already use Full-Text Search, and have you considered this if it is/can be implemented for case sensitivity?
