The analyzer works fine for me when I test it by adding as a library to other classes. So inorder to use that analyzer in opencms, I take the jar file (lucene-analyzers-2.3.1.jar) which is the one having the amharic analyzer integrated in it and then substitute this one with the lucene-analyzers-2.3.1.jar file that exists in the opencms library folder, then I added the analyzer in opencms-search.xml file. When I check to index amharic contents, all that I got was ...skipped, hence I just swapped only the locale (not the class) of am and en, then the analyzer class for Amharic indexes my file with en locale

This cannot be the reason for your problem. Lucene Analyzers analyse 
anything that you give them. I don't know what is going on, but you 
should really check the opencms configurtion of your search indexes. The 
indexing might be bad, but it must be possible to index and kind of 
content with the standard indexer (in other words by using locale "en" 
in your opencms indexing settings).

When you have gotten your opencms indexing to with the standard 
analyzer, then you should try again to switch to your own search locale 
that uses your own Analyzer.

Did you really just change the locale? To me, it sounds like a problem 
with your index sources/indexes in the opencms configuration.
