Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3801) Generify FST shortestPaths() to take a comparator
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 12:30:57 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3801:

I think this might not be hard to fix, consider my comparator:
// compares just the weight side of the pair
static final Comparator<Pair<Long,Long>> minPairWeightComparator = new Comparator<Pair<Long,Long>>
() {
  public int compare(Pair<Long,Long> left, Pair<Long,Long> right) {
    return left.output1.compareTo(right.output1);

Instead of looking for a NO_OUTPUT path, I think we should instead express "output == NO_OUTPUT"
as ", output) == 0",
Ill rerun benchmarks but i don't think this will hurt.

> Not sure we should do this, it costs 5-10% performance for WFSTSuggester.
> But maybe we can optimize something here, or maybe its just no big deal to us.
> Because in general, this could be pretty powerful, e.g. if you needed to store 
> some custom stuff in the suggester, you could use pairoutputs, or whatever.
> And the possibility we might need shortestPaths for other cool things... at the
> least I just wanted to have the patch up here.
> I haven't tested this on pairoutputs... but i've tested it with e.g. FloatOutputs
> and other things and it works fine.
> I tried to minimize the generics violations, there is only 1 (cannot create generic array).
