Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4012) Make all query classes serializable with Jackson, and provide a trivial query parser to consume them
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2012 14:07:34 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4012:

Yeah a sketch (maybe just Term and Boolean or something ?) would be cool, maybe my paranoia
is unjustified... then we could see what it actually would need to look like and think about
the backwards-compatibility/API costs etc would be.

> I started off on LUCENE-4004 wanting to use DisjunctionMaxQuery via a parser. However,
this wasn't really because I thought that human beans should be improvisationally  composing
such thing. My real goal was to concoct a query tree over *here*, and then serialize it to
send to Solr over *there*.

It further occurs to me that the query classes may already all work with Jackson, and, if
they don't, the required tweaks will be quite small. By allowing Jackson to write out class
names as needed, you get the ability to serialize *any* query, so long as the other side has
the classes in class path. A trifle verbose, but not as verbose as XML, and furthermore squishable
(though not in a URL) via SMILE or BSON.
> So, the goal of this JIRA is to accumulate tweaks to the query classes to make them more
'bean pattern'. An alternative would be Jackson annotations. However, I suspect that folks
would be happier to minimize the level of coupling here; in the extreme, the trivial parser
could live in contrib if no one wants a dependency, even optional, on Jackson itself.
