Subject [jira] [Commented] (CODEC-161) Add phonetic algorithm Match Rating Approach (MRA) to the commons codec
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 19:27:12 GMT


Thomas Neidhart commented on CODEC-161:

Hi Colm,

thanks for your contribution, I looked at the patch and it's not so bad, though it will require
some adaptations before it can be accepted:

 * indentation is normally 4 chars, only spaces
 * author name is usually omitted in the source files, but added to the pom.xml
 * try to avoid trailing spaces in a line
 * naming convention for methods: camel case, e.g. removeVowels, instead of RemoveVowels
 * try to use parenthesis also for single line if clauses
 * documentation for private methods should be using javadoc style or omitted
 * the removeAccents method uses indexOf in a string to remove accents, but this can be rather
slow for large strings
   better use a set of all accent chars

btw. there is a checkstyle configuration in the trunk, which you can use to check your contribution
(e.g. with the eclipse plugin or on the command line with maven: mvn checkstyle:checkstyle).
The less warnings remain the more likely it is that a patch will be committed ;-).

implementing StringEncoder
> I have a pretty comprehensive test file located at: org.apache.lucene.analysis.phonetic.MatchRatingApproachTests
> It's not exactly existing pattern so I'm going to need a bit of advice here. Thanks!
Feel free to email.

> I had incorrectly added this to Lucene solution as LUCENE-4494 but received some good
advice to move it to here. I'm doing that now.
