Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-1421) Ability to group search results by field
Date Wed, 11 May 2011 21:25:47 GMT


Martijn van Groningen commented on LUCENE-1421:

Nice work Michael! I also think that the two pass mechanism is definitely the preferred way
to go. 

I think we also need a strategy mechanism (or at least an GroupCollector class hierarchy)
inside this module. The mechanism should select the right group collector(s) for a certain
request. Some users maybe only care about the top group document, so I second pass won't be
necessary. Another example with faceting in mind. When group based faceting is necessary.
The top N groups don't suffice. You'll need all group docs (I currently don't see a other
way). These groups docs are then used to create a grouped Solr DocSet. But this should be
a completely different implementation.

> It would be awesome to group search results by specified field. Some functionality was
provided for Apache Solr but I think it should be done in Core Lucene. There could be some
useful information like total hits about collapsed data like total count and so on.
