Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1821) Weight.scorer() not passed doc offset for "sub reader"
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2009 22:02:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1821?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12744747#action_12744747
] 

Tim Smith commented on LUCENE-1821:
-----------------------------------

the int[] index array is used as a "perfect" hash function in order to be able to map all
documents sharing the same value, so the int[] index from each sub reader can have different
hash values for the same term (Thats why the string sorting in 2.9 is real nasty, because
it can't just compare the ord values any more (unless you're lucky and you're comparing docs
from the same reader)

>             Project: Lucene - Java
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Search
>    Affects Versions: 2.9
>            Reporter: Tim Smith

> Now that searching is done on a per segment basis, there is no way for a Scorer to know
the "actual" doc id for the document's it matches (only the relative doc offset into the segment)
> If using caches in your scorer that are based on the "entire" index (all segments), there
is now no way to index into them properly from inside a Scorer because the scorer is not passed
the needed offset to calculate the "real" docid
> suggest having Weight.scorer() method also take a integer for the doc offset
> Abstract Weight class should have a constructor that takes this offset as well as a method
to get the offset
> All Weights that have "sub" weights must pass this offset down to created "sub" weights
