Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4055) Refactor SegmentInfo / FieldInfo to make them extensible
Date Mon, 28 May 2012 20:09:23 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4055:

However, I would still need the codec metadata for every field.

What codec metadata? this change only allows codecs to add additional things to fieldinfo/segmentinfo
so they can later be read when the segment is opened. E.g. a CompressingStoredFieldsWriter
could put in the segmentinfo an additional key-value like "CompressingStoredFieldsWriter.algorithm=deflate"

These are private to that component basically: i don't understand why your indexing chain
would care about this? its at a level above all that.

abstract so that they can be extended by Codec-s.
