Subject [jira] Closed: (LUCENE-2628) Extract OpenBitSet to Apache Commons
Date Tue, 31 Aug 2010 11:02:55 GMT


Shai Erera closed LUCENE-2628.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

Closing the issue. This clearly isn't a Lucene issue. Like many people said, Stu can take
OBS into commons and Lucene can decide later if it wants to adopt the commons version or not.
The discussion on independent .jars or not can continue on the mailing list - I assume more
people will read it there than when it's inside that issue (and also it's irrelevant to the
issue itself).

> o.a.l.util.OpenBitSet is a great alternative to java.util.BitSet, and it is generally
useful outside of the search field. It would be great if OpenBitSet were available outside
of Lucene proper, perhaps as part of Apache Commons.
> Aside from the communication required to accomplish this, there is the small issue of
OpenBitSet extending in Lucene 3.0. There is very little logic contained
in DocIdSet, so it could probably become an interface: Lucene proper could then extend the
extract version of OpenBitSet to implement DocIdSet.
