Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1356) Allow easy extensions of TopDocCollector
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2008 14:34:44 GMT


Doron Cohen commented on LUCENE-1356:

Shai, Thanks for creating this issue and patch!

I noticed you also modified the private reusableSD to be protected.

This field is just for avoiding creating a new object at each insert to the priority queue.

Note that TopFieldDocCollector maintains its own reusable object for this matter, and it of
a 'slightly' different type.

I am wondering if the right thing to do is to (1) leave that field private, or (2) make it
protected but then make TopFieldDocCollector  use it too.
I'm inclined for option 1.

What do you think? Others?

> TopDocCollector's members and constructor are declared either private or package visible.
It makes it hard to extend it as if you want to extend it you can reuse its *hq* and *totatlHits*
members, but need to define your own. It also forces you to override getTotalHits() and topDocs().
> By changing its members and constructor (the one that accepts a PQ) to protected, we
allow users to extend it in order to get a different view of 'top docs' (like TopFieldCollector
does), but still enjoy its getTotalHits() and topDocs() method implementations.
