Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1685) Make the Highlighter use SpanScorer by default
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 02:46:14 GMT


Mark Miller commented on LUCENE-1685:

I reopened this because I saw that changing benchmark to use QueryScorer rather than QueryTermScorer
was failing, and at first it looked like it wasn't producing Highlights - I think the issue
is with the Benchmark code (it just wans't counting the highlights), but I have reopened this
just in case. When I can test and know for sure, I'll resolve this again.

> I've always thought this made sense, but frankly, it took me a year to get the SpanScorer
included with Lucene at all, so I was pretty much ready to move on after I it got in, rather
than push for it as a default.
> I think it makes sense as the default in Solr as well, and I mentioned that back when
it was put in, but alas, its an option there as well.
> The Highlighter package has no back compat req, but custom has been conservative - one
reason I havn't pushed for this change before. Might be best to actually make the switch in
3? I could go either way - as is, I know a bunch of people use it, but I'm betting its the
large minority. It has never been listed in a changes entry and its not in LIA 1, so you pretty
much have to stumble upon it, and figure out what its for.
> I'll point out again that its just as fast as the standard scorer for any clause of a
query that is not position sensitive. Position sensitive query clauses will obviously be somewhat
slower to highlight, but that is because they will be highlighted correctly rather than ignoring
