Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3792) Remove StringField
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 05:19:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3792?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13210062#comment-13210062

Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-3792:
------------------------------------

A couple of comments:

* NOT_ANALYZED has two variants - with and without norms. I always uses NOT_ANALYZED_NO_NORMS.
Is the KWD_ANALYZED suggestion meant to create two variants too? If not, we should somehow
let the user be able to express a KWD analyzed field with and without norms.

* How about renaming StringField to KeywordField? Same as Chris's idea, but removing Analyzed
... shorter name and still captures the essence of it.

* And maybe TextField -> TokenizedField?

> Often on the mailing list there is confusion about NOT_ANALYZED.
> Besides being useless (Just use KeywordAnalyzer instead), people trip up on this
> not being consistent at query time (you really need to configure KeywordAnalyzer for
the field 
> on your PerFieldAnalyzerWrapper so it will do the same thing at query time... oh wait
> once you've done that, you dont need NOT_ANALYZED).
> So I think StringField is a trap too for the same reasons, just under a 
> different name, lets remove it.
