Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3862) DocValues getInt() returns long, getFloat() returns double
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2012 17:56:57 GMT


Simon Willnauer commented on LUCENE-3862:

actually I really don't want this! this increases the complexity. The interface says it can
provide Bytes, Integers and Floats independent of their internal encoding or max size. With
those methods in place we just gonna cast around which should be done by the user of the API.
