Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1910) Extension to MoreLikeThis to use tag information

--------------------------------------

Hi Thomas,
Following your request for feedback, some initial thoughts from a very quick look.

* The "Information Gain" algo could use a little more explanation e.g. using variable names
other than "num1" and "num2" and could perhaps be extracted into a utility class

* Is this scalable? It looks like in initialize it is loading this:
{code:title=MoreLikeThisUsingTags.java|borderStyle=solid}
	/**
      * All terms in the index
      */
	protected HashSet docTerms=new HashSet();
{code} 
..that seems a little scary!
It's also doing a seperate BooleanQuery for all items in this list ( and repeated for >1
tag?). Thats look like a lot of searches.

I need to spend a little more time looking at it before I understand it in more detail.
Before then - have you tested this on a big (millions of docs/terms) index? Some performance
figures would be useful to accompany this.

Cheers,
Mark

> I would like to contribute a class based on the MoreLikeThis class in
> contrib/queries that generates a query based on the tags associated
> with a document. The class assumes that documents are tagged with a
> set of tags (which are stored in the index in a seperate Field). The
> class determines the top document terms associated with a given tag
> using the information gain metric.
> While generating a MoreLikeThis query for a document the tags
> associated with document are used to determine the terms in the query.
> This class is useful for finding similar documents to a document that
> does not have many relevant terms but was tagged.
