Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3749) javadocs and simplifications for 4.0
Date Sun, 04 Mar 2012 23:38:59 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3749:

This patch does not break anything, it changes the configuration mechanism for an unreleased

if you want a per-field similarity, then configure a <similarity> in your schema.xml
extends PerFieldSimilarityWrapper. If you want it to defer to the fieldType in the schema,
then make it SchemaAware so that its initialized with an IndexSchema object.

An example one (SchemaSimilarityFactory) is provided that just this, and here is its test:

> As part of adding additional scoring systems to lucene, we made a lower-level Similarity
> and the existing stuff became e.g. TFIDFSimilarity which extends it.
> However, I always feel bad about the complexity introduced here (though I do feel there
> are some "excuses", that its a difficult challenge).
> In order to try to mitigate this, we also exposed an easier API (SimilarityBase) on top
> it that makes some assumptions (and trades off some performance) to try to provide something

> consumable for e.g. experiments.
> Still, we can cleanup a few things with the low-level api: fix outdated documentation
> shoot for better/clearer naming etc.
