Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3087) highlighting exact phrase with overlapping tokens fails.
Date Thu, 12 May 2011 15:58:47 GMT


Pierre Gossé commented on LUCENE-3087:

Yes, that would be the best.

But I'm not sure how to do that :
- Check for positions in token stream ? Not sure it "guaranties" anything. :)
- add some kind of additionnal properties to the tokenstream returned by the IndexReader.getTermFreqVector
since it access fields info ? Not sure it has'nt too much impact.
- Ask the index for field infos from TokenSources.getTokenStream ? Not sure it is the place
but look like the less dangerous option.

I haven't much time 'till the end of month to take a serious look at this, but I'll try to
take some time next month.

> Fields with overlapping token are not highlighted in search results when searching exact
phrases, when using TermVector.WITH_OFFSET.
> The document builded in MemoryIndex for highlight does not preserve positions of tokens
in this case. Overlapping tokens get "flattened" (position increment always set to 1), the
spanquery used for searching relevant fragment will fail to identify the correct token sequence
because the position shift.
> I corrected this by adding a position increment calculation in sub class StoredTokenStream.
I added junit test covering this case.
> I used the eclipse codestyle from trunk, but style add quite a few format differences
between repository and working copy files. I tried to reduce them, but some linewrapping rules
still doesn't match.
> Correction patch joined
