Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2310) Reduce Fieldable, AbstractField and Field complexity
Date Sun, 14 Mar 2010 20:59:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2310?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12845135#action_12845135

Chris Male commented on LUCENE-2310:
------------------------------------

Haha, i whole heartedly agree with all your points.

One option instead of adding another method to return Iterable<Fieldable>, is for Document
to implement Iterable<Fieldable> and to return a unmodifiable Iterator.

This would then fit nicely with future ideas I had about providing iterators based on FieldType
criteria, allowing the IW to then retrieve an iterator of only those fields which are to be
indexed for example.

> In order to move field type like functionality into its own class, we really need to
try to tackle the hierarchy of Fieldable, AbstractField and Field.  Currently AbstractField
depends on Field, and does not provide much more functionality that storing fields, most of
which are being moved over to FieldType.  Therefore it seems ideal to try to deprecate AbstractField
(and possible Fieldable), moving much of the functionality into Field and FieldType.
