Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1614) Add next() and skipTo() variants to DocIdSetIterator that return the current doc, instead of boolean
Date Tue, 19 May 2009 20:35:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1614?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12710869#action_12710869

Paul Elschot commented on LUCENE-1614:
--------------------------------------

About using Integer.MAX_VALUE as sentinel, did anyone consider what happens when the first
index actually reaches that number of documents?

On moving from the priority queue (DisjunctionSumScorer/BooleanScorer2) to the batch approach
(BooleanScorer): I did not find a way to do that while scoring docs in docId order. Basically
it's a priority queue versus a distribution "sort" on the low docId bits into a linked list.
The priority queue can be made faster by inlining (there is a patch for that, I can't get
to the issue number now), but that's about the limit as far as I can see.

for the full discussion. The basic idea is to add variants to those two methods that return
the current doc they are at, to save successive calls to doc(). If there are no more docs,
return -1. A summary of what was discussed so far:
> # Deprecate those two methods.
> # Add nextDoc() and skipToDoc(int) that return doc, with default impl in DISI (calls
next() and skipTo() respectively, and will be changed to abstract in 3.0).
> #* I actually would like to propose an alternative to the names: advance() and advance(int)
- the first advances by one, the second advances to target.
> # Wherever these are used, do something like '(doc = advance()) >= 0' instead of comparing
to -1 for improved performance.
> I will post a patch shortly
