Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-569) NearSpans skipTo bug
Date Sat, 13 May 2006 11:02:08 GMT

paul.elschot commented on LUCENE-569:

Fwiw, TestNearSpans passes on my working copy that has the alternative NearSpans.
It's still worthwhile to try locate the bug in the current NearSpans.

The last skipTo bug in DisjunctionSumScorer was caused by me not understanding
that skipTo() always advances at least one document, even when the given target
is at or before the current document of the Scorer on which skipTo is called.
I would not be surprised if this turns out to be a similar problem.

> NearSpans appears to have a bug in skipTo that causes it to skip over some matching documents
completely.  I discovered this bug while investigating problems with SpanWeight.explain, but
as far as I can tell the Bug is not specific to Explanations ... it seems like it could potentially
result in incorrect matching in some situations where a SpanNearQuery is nested in another
query such thatskipTo will be used ... I tried to create a high level test case to exploit
the bug when searching, but i could not.  TestCase exploiting the class using NearSpan and
SpanScorer will follow...
