Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1821) Weight.scorer() not passed doc offset for "sub reader"
Date Thu, 20 Aug 2009 09:59:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1821?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12745367#action_12745367
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1821:
--------------------------------------------

I think we should in fact add this API to 2.9?  It can ease the transition for users doing
expert stuff w/ Lucene today.  The current patch looks reasonable, but we should mark it as
expert and note that one should switch one's app logic to be per-segment whenever possible,
instead of operating in the composite reader's docID space.  We should also note that it's
O(N) CPU cost, ie, you should not call it for every hit (for example), but rather once per-segment
and then hold onto that base.

> 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
> Details on workaround:
> In order to work around this, you must do the following:
> * Subclass IndexSearcher
> * Add "int getIndexReaderBase(IndexReader)" method to your subclass
> * during Weight creation, the Weight must hold onto a reference to the passed in Searcher
(casted to your sub class)
> * during Scorer creation, the Scorer must be passed the result of YourSearcher.getIndexReaderBase(reader)
> * Scorer can now rebase any collected docids using this offset
> Example implementation of getIndexReaderBase():
> {code}
> // NOTE: more efficient implementation can be done if you cache the result if gatherSubReaders
in your constructor
> public int getIndexReaderBase(IndexReader reader) {
>   if (reader == getReader()) {
>     return 0;
>   } else {
>     List readers = new ArrayList();
>     gatherSubReaders(readers);
>     Iterator iter = readers.iterator();
>     int maxDoc = 0;
>     while (iter.hasNext()) {
>       IndexReader r = (IndexReader)iter.next();
>       if (r == reader) {
>         return maxDoc;
>       } 
>       maxDoc += r.maxDoc();
>     } 
>   }
>   return -1; // reader not in searcher
> }
> {code}
> Notes:
> * This workaround makes it so you cannot serialize your custom Weight implementation
