Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4369) StringFields name is unintuitive and not helpful
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 11:50:09 GMT

The problem with ExactMatch field is: If it is also stored, the name is misleasing again,
so KeywordField is better.

I dont understand how storing is related. storing is the same always.

If we would 100% differentiate between stored and indexed fields while indexing (requiring
that the field is also added 2 times, one time as indexed and one time as indexed), I would
be fine with "MatchOnlyField" and "StoredStringField".
{quote}

In my opinion the only thing worse we could do to our .document API than StringField would
be to require the user to add the field twice.

> There's a huge difference between TextField and StringField, StringField screws up scoring
and bypasses your Analyzer.
> (see java-user thread "Custom Analyzer Not Called When Indexing" as an example.)
> The name we use here is vital, otherwise people will get bad results.
> I think we should rename StringField to MatchOnlyField.
