Subject Re: forbid empty field names?
Date Fri, 12 May 2006 21:41:49 GMT


I'm curious: does the exception only occur if both the field and the value
are empty? ... are the Field.Store and Field.Index options you listed
neccessary for this condition as well?

Is it clear why this situation causes the exception?

(I don't have any obejction to rejecting blank field names .. i'm just
wondering if getting an the exception in this case is a symptom of a a
more general problem that could be fixed at a lower level)

: This produces a "term out of order" exception:
:
: doc.add(new Field("", "", Field.Store.YES, Field.Index.UN_TOKENIZED));
:
: As the exception is quite confusing we should probably catch it earlier,
: providing a better message. But would it be okay to disallow all empty
: field names? If not, I'd at least like to throw an exception if both field
: name and value are empty (null values do already produce a helpful
: exception)
