Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENE-652) Compressed fields should be "externalized" (from Fields into Document)

Compressed fields should be "externalized" (from Fields into Document)

                 Key: LUCENE-652
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Index
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0, 1.9, 2.0.1, 2.1
            Reporter: Michael McCandless

Right now, as of 2.0 release, Lucene supports compressed stored fields.  However, after discussion
on java-dev, the suggestion arose, from Robert Engels, that it would be better if this logic
were moved into the Document level.  This way the indexing level just stores opaque binary
fields, and then Document handles compress/uncompressing as needed.

This approach would have prevented issues like LUCENE-629 because merging of segments would
never need to decompress.

See this thread for the recent discussion:

When we do this we should also work on related issue LUCENE-648.
