Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-794) SpanScorer and SimpleSpanFragmenter for Contrib Highlighter
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2007 23:40:09 GMT


Mark Harwood commented on LUCENE-794:

>>How can I ignore fields in a SpanQuery. Now it hits me, rather embarrassingly, such
a SpanQuery doesn't make sense at all. 

Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing. Yes, I too came to the obvious realisation
that a single SpanQuery cannot test content from more than one field - but I don't think that
is something we were trying to support here. The requirement (as I understand it) is to support
a scenario where a SpanQuery  was testing only one field, say the "body" field and yet the
user wanted to see any matches that just so happened to occur in another field, say the "title"
field. Nowhere in the query was there a suggestion of any criteria mandatory or otherwise
testing the "title" field - the user just wanted to highlight the title field for additional
In this scenario we have the challenge of taking the "body" query terms and using them to
highlight "title" field content. A "match" would have to disregard the original choice of
field name but would still require that  the positions of term text adhered to the SpanQuery

Hope this makes sense

> This patch adds a new Scorer class (SpanQueryScorer) to the Highlighter package that
scores just like QueryScorer, but scores a 0 for Terms that did not cause the Query hit. This
gives 'actual' hit highlighting for the range of SpanQuerys and PhraseQuery. There is also
a new Fragmenter that attempts to fragment without breaking up Spans.

> There is a dependency on MemoryIndex.
