Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1616) add one setter for start and end offset to OffsetAttribute
Date Mon, 27 Apr 2009 15:54:30 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1616:

bq. And force everyone who has slightly different use-case to jump through the hoops.

"Simple things should be simple and complex things should be possible" is a strong guide when
I'm thinking about APIs, configuration, etc.

My feeling here is for the vast majority of the cases, people set start & end offset together,
so we should shift to the API that makes that easy.  This is the "simple" case.

For the remaining minority (your interesting use case), you can still do what you need but
yes there are some hoops to go through.  This is the "complex" case.

bq. Span*Query api is a perfect example.

Can you describe the limitations here in more detail?
