             Summary: Remove PayloadProcessProvider
                 Key: LUCENE-4304
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4304
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Michael McCandless


Now that we have pluggable codecs (well, PostingsFormat), an app should use a custom PostingsFormat
if it really must change payloads while merging.

Alternatively, use a FilteredIndexReader to modify anything during addIndexes (eg the facets
use case, modifying payloads).

Since this capability can be handled by existing more-generic functions I don't see why we
need to keep PPP around in core.  PPP is also fragile because an app generally has no visibility
on when a merge commits so it can't know if the payloads it retrieves are pre or post PPP.

I think merging shouldn't change postings as a side-effect (by default, anyway, since a custom
PF can of course override merge and do whatever it wants).
