Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-652) Compressed fields should be "externalized" (from Fields into Document)
Date Fri, 20 Mar 2009 19:06:51 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-652?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Uwe Schindler updated LUCENE-652:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: LUCENE-652.patch

This is a first version using UnicodeUtils. The deprecated Store.COMPRESS part still uses
String.getBytes() because of backwards compatibility (otherwise it would be a change in index
format).
This version currenty creates a new UTFxResult, because no state, so not close method. It
can also be synchronized or without ThreadLocal, but this may not be so good.
The current version has a little performance impact because of array copying.

> 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:
>     http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/lucene/java-dev/38836
> When we do this we should also work on related issue LUCENE-648.
