Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4369) StringFields name is unintuitive and not helpful
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 11:48:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4369?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13452945#comment-13452945

Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-4369:
---------------------------------------

bq. We don't need to rush it, I think its fairly contained to change, we don't even have to
deal with this for 
4.0 if we aren't happy: we can deprecate StringField just have it extend XXXField in a future
4.x release too.

I am against this, we should change this before Lucene 4.0. We have seen already on user list
that many people understand it wrong, so for me this issue is a "Blocker" for 4.0.

> 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.
