Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1821) Weight.scorer() not passed doc offset for "sub reader"
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2009 12:56:14 GMT


Mark Miller commented on LUCENE-1821:

I think thats a good idea. I think that last sentence needs a bit of work. Here is another
attempt that I am still not quite happy with:

{code}13. LUCENE-1483: When searching over multiple segments, a new Scorer is created for
each segment. 
        The Weight is created only once for the top level searcher. Each Scorer is passed
the per-segment IndexReader.
        This will result in docids in the Scorer being internal to the per-segment IndexReader
and there is currently no way
         to rebase these docids to the top level IndexReader. This will likely break any caches/filters
in Scorers that rely on docids from the top 
         level IndexReader eg if you rely on the IndexReader to contain every doc id in the

>          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
