Subject [jira] [Updated] (SOLR-3140) Make omitNorms default for all numeric field types
Date Wed, 29 Feb 2012 13:25:57 GMT


Jan Høydahl updated SOLR-3140:

    Attachment: SOLR-3140.patch

First patch. Introduces a new NumericFieldType which sets omitNorms=true in init(). All numeric
fields inherit from this and if schema version >1.4 (patch bumps it to 1.5) the new default
will be used.

I could not find a way to set this default in constructor, as we do not know yet the schema
version, before init() is called, right?

Open issues:
* Is there a better place to set this default than in init() in the new base class?
* Should StrField or other fields also have omitNorms as default?

> Today norms are enabled for all Solr field types by default, while in Lucene norms are
omitted for the numeric types.
> Propose to make the Solr defaults the same as in Lucene, so that if someone occasionally
wants index-side boost for a numeric field type they must say omitNorms="false". This lets
us simplify the example schema too.
