Date Sun, 25 Mar 2012 17:03:27 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-2482:

This issue is actually fixed in 3.x, but is still open for a 4.0 port.

I'll open an issue (with fix version of 4.0) for the trunk port.

> A tool to sort index according to a float document weight. Documents with high weight
are given low document numbers, which means that they will be first evaluated. When using
a strategy of "early termination" of queries (see TimeLimitedCollector) such sorting significantly
improves the quality of partial results.
> (Originally this tool was created by Doug Cutting in Nutch, and used norms as document
weights - thus the ordering was limited by the limited resolution of norms. This is a pure
Lucene version of the tool, and it uses arbitrary floats from a specified stored field).
