 * Tokenize Chinese text as individual chinese characters.
 * <p>
 * The difference between ChineseTokenizer and
 * CJKTokenizer is that they have different
 * token parsing logic.
 * </p>
 * <p>
 * For example, if the Chinese text
 * "C1C2C3C4" is to be indexed:
 * <ul>
 * <li>The tokens returned from ChineseTokenizer are C1, C2, C3, C4. 
 * <li>The tokens returned from the CJKTokenizer are C1C2, C2C3, C3C4.
 * </ul>
 * </p>
 * <p>
 * Therefore the index created by CJKTokenizer is much larger.
 * </p>
 * <p>
 * The problem is that when searching for C1, C1C2, C1C3,
 * C4C2, C1C2C3 ... the ChineseTokenizer works, but the
 * CJKTokenizer will not work.
 * </p>
 * @version 1.0
 * @deprecated Use {@link StandardTokenizer} instead, which has the same functionality.
 * This filter will be removed in Lucene 5.0
