Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3892) Add a useful intblock postings format (eg, FOR, PFOR, PFORDelta, Simple9/16/64, etc.)
Date Sat, 02 Jun 2012 13:30:23 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-3892:

Awesome progress!  Nice to have a dirt path online that we can then
iterate from ...

Hmm, I'm seeing some test failures when I run:
ant test -Dtests.postingsformat=PFor
Eg, TestNRTThreads, TestShardSearching, TestTimeLimitingCollector.

Remember to add the standard copyright headers to each new source

We don't have to do this now, but I wonder if we can share code w/ the
packed ints impl we have, instead generating another one with the .py

TestDemo makes a nice TestMin... I usually start with TestDemo when
testing scary new code, and then it's a huge milestone once TestDemo
passes :)

We should definitely cutover to BlockTree terms dict (I would upgrade
that TODO to a nocommit!).

I suspect that wrapping the blocks byte[] as ByteBuffer and then
IntBuffer is going to be too costly per decode so we should init them
once and re-use (upgrade that TODO to a nocommit).
