Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2628) Extract OpenBitSet to Apache Commons
Date Mon, 30 Aug 2010 11:53:54 GMT


Simon Willnauer commented on LUCENE-2628:

I agree with Robert and Shai on this issues and that other folks should just pull out the
class they need. Adding it to commons makes sense and they should likely go that way. Still
we should try to move the modularization forward as we did with analyzers etc. 
Yet making a module out of almost 100% lucene.internal API doesn't make sense and would bring
lots of disadvantages as folk have outlined above. 

bq. But I'll fight this fight in another issue when I propose such a module 
Once it is beneficial for Lucene I am with you! I was only one more option which came to my

That said, I suggest to close this issue and move forward. If nobody objects I am going to
do that by the end of the day.

> 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.
