Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-1084) increase default maxFieldLength?
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2008 16:52:08 GMT


Steven Rowe updated LUCENE-1084:

    Attachment: LUCENE-1084.part2.take2.patch

The javadoc description of the MaxFieldLength parameter (mfl) in the IndexWriter constructors
is now "whether or not to limit field lengths".  

This should probably be rewritten in light of the change allowing user specification of values
other than LIMITED or UNLIMITED.  How's this?:

/** ...
 * @param mfl Maximum field length: LIMITED, UNLIMITED, or user-specified
 *   via the MaxFieldLength constructor.
 * ...

Attaching part2.take2 patch including this javadoc change and the MaxFieldLength extension
and constructor changes.

> To my understanding, Lucene 2.3 will easily index large documents. So shouldn't we get
rid of the 10,000 default limit for the field length? 10,000 isn't that much and as Lucene
doesn't have any error logging by default, this is a common problem for users that is difficult
to debug if you don't know where to look.
> A better new default might be Integer.MAX_VALUE.
