Subject Control over Lucene Index
Date Wed, 03 May 2006 09:42:28 GMT


in the context of a distributed information retrieval project, we would 
like to use Lucene for its indexing capabilities but not for retrieval. 
In particular, we would like to populate a Lucene index with the tokens 
and statistics already computed by an external indexer, thereby 
bypassing the document-based parsing, analysis, and ingestion into the 
index which characterises Lucene's standard workflow. Is this possible? 
That is, is it possible to feed precomputed statistics into a Lucene's 
index? And is it possible to have control on what statistics are 
associated with each document (as we will not use Lucene for retrieval 
we are not interested in complying with the statistics it needs to 
perform a search).

Any help greatly appreciated, many thanks.
