Subject Re: Field attribute is not consistent with field data attribute?
Date Sat, 31 May 2008 00:03:43 GMT

: A lucene field has some attributes (eg. storeTermVector ...), when 
: a document is added these attributes are updated, so how these
: fields attributes can represent all field datas attributes? 

some properties are specific to the field across the entire index, 
regardless of how many docs use them -- fieldNorms for example exist for 
all docs as soon as one doc has an instance of that field that does not 
omitNorms.  Off the top of my head, i can't remember if storeTermVector 
works like that ... i seem to recall some fairly straight forward 
documentation about which properties are per field name, and which are per 
field instance, but i'm not finding it at the moment.

Does anyone know if/where this is documented?  is it only in LIA?
