Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-4188) Storing Shapes shouldn't be Strategy dependent
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2012 03:25:33 GMT
Chris Male created LUCENE-4188:

             Summary: Storing Shapes shouldn't be Strategy dependent
                 Key: LUCENE-4188
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: modules/spatial
            Reporter: Chris Male

The logic for storing Shape representations seems to be different for each Strategy.  The
PrefixTreeStrategy impls store the Shape in WKT, which is nice if you're using WKT but not
much help if you're not.  BBoxStrategy doesn't actually store the Shape itself, but a representation
of the bounding box.  TwoDoubles seems to follow the PrefixTreeStrategy approach, which is
surprising since it only indexes Points and they could be stored without using WKT.

I think we need to consider what storing a Shape means.  If we want to store the Shape itself,
then that logic should be standardised and done outside of the Strategys since it is not really
related to them.  If we want to store the terms being used by the Strategys to make Shapes
queryable, then we need to change the logic in the Strategys to actually do this.
