Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3130) Use BoostAttribute in in TokenFilters to denote Terms that QueryParser should give lower boosts
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 14:02:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3130?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13094545#comment-13094545

Jan Høydahl commented on LUCENE-3130:
-------------------------------------

The core of this issue is providing a mechanism for deboosting synonyms, and as long as it
works with single-term synonyms that at least covers what most people use today. I propose
we handle that first. Agree that it would be nice with a query-parser which can handle multi
word synonyms. But that could be handled incrementally in a separate issue.

> A recent thread asked if there was anyway to use QueryTime synonyms such that matches
on the original term specified by the user would score higher then matches on the synonym.
 It occurred to me later that a float Attribute could be set by the SynonymFilter in such
situations, and QueryParser could use that float as a boost in the resulting Query.  IThis
would be fairly straightforward for the simple "synonyms => BooleamQuery" case, but we'd
have to decide how to handle the case of synonyms with multiple terms that produce MTPQ, possibly
just punt for now)
> Likewise, there may be other TokenFilters that "inject" artificial tokens at query time
where it also might make sense to have a reduced "boost" factor...
> * SynonymFilter
> * CommonGramsFilter
> * WordDelimiterFilter
> * etc...
> In all of these cases, the amount of the "boost" could me configured, and for back compact
could default to "1.0" (or null to not set a boost at all)
> Furthermore: if we add a new BoostAttrToPayloadAttrFilter that just copied the boost
attribute into the payload attribute, these same filters could give "penalizing" payloads
to terms when used at index time) could give "penalizing" payloads to terms.
