Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1630) Mating Collector and Scorer on doc Id orderness
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2009 11:31:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1630?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12715484#action_12715484

Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-1630:
------------------------------------

I want to start working on that once LUCENE-1614 is resolved. In the meantime, I'd like to
discuss whether we should define a topScorer() method on Weight, or have Weight introduce
a score(Collector) method.
I think I prefer the latter since even if I call topScorer and get back a Scorer, nothing
prevents me from iterating on the Scorer, rather than calling its score(Collector) method.
Also, we can deprecate Scorer.score(Collector), and come up w/ another one which is package-private.

Another thing that was brought up by Mavin:

If you make QueryWeight a subclass of Query, do you need any new methods?

Before Weight existed, only Query and Scorer existed. Compiling a Scorer
involved "weighting the query", by factoring IDF etc, then calling
query.Scorer().  To make Query objects reusable, Weight was introduced as an
intermediate stage.  Making QueryWeight a subclass of Query would be entirely
within the spirit of the original design, since the role played by Weight was
originally performed by a Query.

Today Weight exposes only few methods, and I don't want to have to implement some of Query
methods, just because QueryWeight (the replacement of Weight) will subclass Query. But I don't
know enough about what led to that decision.

To me, it'd be ok to get rid of Weight entirely and just have Query and Scorer, while Query.scorer()
do whatever Weight does today. But Marvin mentions reusing Query objects (which I don't fully
understand what that means - is it reusing the instance or the code), so I'd like to hear
your thoughts.

If we do get rid of Weight, or make QueryWeight a subclass of Query, it will simplify the
Searcher API.

> This is a spin off of LUCENE-1593. This issue proposes to expose appropriate API on Scorer
and Collector such that one can create an optimized Collector based on a given Scorer's doc-id
orderness and vice versa. Copied from LUCENE-1593, here is the list of changes:
> # Deprecate Weight and create QueryWeight (abstract class) with a new scorer(reader,
scoreDocsInOrder), replacing the current scorer(reader) method. QueryWeight implements Weight,
while score(reader) calls score(reader, false /* out-of-order */) and scorer(reader, scoreDocsInOrder)
is defined abstract.
> #* Also add QueryWeightWrapper to wrap a given Weight implementation. This one will also
be deprecated, as well as package-private.
> #* Add to Query variants of createWeight and weight which return QueryWeight. For now,
I prefer to add a default impl which wraps the Weight variant instead of overriding in all
Query extensions, and in 3.0 when we remove the Weight variants - override in all extending
classes.
> # Add to Scorer isOutOfOrder with a default to false, and override in BS to true.
> # Modify BooleanWeight to extend QueryWeight and implement the new scorer method to return
BS2 or BS based on the number of required scorers and setAllowOutOfOrder.
> # Add to Collector an abstract _acceptsDocsOutOfOrder_ which returns true/false.
> #* Use it in IndexSearcher.search methods, that accept a Collector, in order to create
the appropriate Scorer, using the new QueryWeight.
> #* Provide a static create method to TFC and TSDC which accept this as an argument and
creates the proper instance.
> #* Wherever we create a Collector (TSDC or TFC), always ask for out-of-order Scorer and
check on the resulting Scorer isOutOfOrder(), so that we can create the optimized Collector
instance.
> # Modify IndexSearcher to use all of the above logic.
> The only class I'm worried about, and would like to verify with you, is Searchable. If
we want to deprecate all the search methods on IndexSearcher, Searcher and Searchable which
accept Weight and add new ones which accept QueryWeight, we must do the following:
> * Deprecate Searchable in favor of Searcher.
> * Add to Searcher the new QueryWeight variants. Here we have two choices: (1) break back-compat
and add them as abstract (like we've done with the new Collector method) or (2) add them with
a default impl to call the Weight versions, documenting these will become abstract in 3.0.
> * Have Searcher extend UnicastRemoteObject and have RemoteSearchable extend Searcher.
That's the part I'm a little bit worried about - Searchable implements java.rmi.Remote, which
means there could be an implementation out there which implements Searchable and extends something
different than UnicastRemoteObject, like Activeable. I think there is very small chance this
has actually happened, but would like to confirm with you guys first.
> * Add a deprecated, package-private, SearchableWrapper which extends Searcher and delegates
all calls to the Searchable member.
> * Deprecate all uses of Searchable and add Searcher instead, defaulting the old ones
to use SearchableWrapper.
> * Make all the necessary changes to IndexSearcher, MultiSearcher etc. regarding overriding
these new methods.
> One other optimization that was discussed in LUCENE-1593 is to expose a topScorer() API
(on Weight) which returns a Scorer that its score(Collector) will be called, and additionally
add a start() method to DISI. That will allow Scorers to initialize either on start() or score(Collector).
This was proposed mainly because of BS and BS2 which check if they are initialized in every
call to next(), skipTo() and score(). Personally I prefer to see that in a separate issue,
following that one (as it might add methods to QueryWeight).
