Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3312) Break out StorableField from IndexableField
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2011 06:54:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3312?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13093483#comment-13093483

Chris Male commented on LUCENE-3312:
------------------------------------

I'm almost done getting an initial patch for this, just one issue remaining - IndexDocValues.
 IndexDocValues can be both not indexed and not stored.  Therefore when you retrieve the indexed
fields and then the stored fields, you can miss some IndexDocValues.  It seems to be that
we might need a 3rd interface to cover these fields?

> In the field type branch we have strongly decoupled
> Document/Field/FieldType impl from the indexer, by having only a
> narrow API (IndexableField) passed to IndexWriter.  This frees apps up
> use their own "documents" instead of the "user-space" impls we provide
> in oal.document.
> Similarly, with LUCENE-3309, we've done the same thing on the
> doc/field retrieval side (from IndexReader), with the
> StoredFieldsVisitor.
> But, maybe we should break out StorableField from IndexableField,
> such that when you index a doc you provide two Iterables -- one for the
> IndexableFields and one for the StorableFields.  Either can be null.
> One downside is possible perf hit for fields that are both indexed &
> stored (ie, we visit them twice, lookup their name in a hash twice,
> etc.).  But the upside is a cleaner separation of concerns in API....
