Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3354) Extend FieldCache architecture to multiple Values
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2011 13:40:09 GMT


Martijn van Groningen commented on LUCENE-3354:

bq. What are thoughts on using DocValues rather then FieldCache?
Maybe both should be available. Not all fields have indexed docvalues.

bq. We should start with this in 4.0! For backwards compatibility we could still have the
FieldCache class, but just delegating.
Changing the architecture seems like a big task to me. Maybe that should be done in a different
issue. This issue will then depend on it.
