Subject [jira] [Updated] (SOLR-2255) local params are not parsed in facet.pivot parameter
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 05:01:08 GMT


David Smiley updated SOLR-2255:

    Attachment: SOLR-2255_local-param_support_for_pivot_faceting.patch

Attached is a patch developed against trunk.  It'll probably apply cleanly against 4x but
I haven't tried yet.

Adding this feature was awkward because of the nature of the PivotFacetHelper and SimpleFacet
classes.  The core of the problem is that PivotFacetHelper needs to invoke SimpleFacet.parseParams()
somehow but that method is package access.  And the variables it sets are package access as
well.  It is invoked indirectly via getFacetFieldCounts() but PivotFacetHelper sidesteps that
method and calls getTermCounts() so that the pivot code can split on commas.  PivotFacetHelper
was oddly (IMO) declared as a thread-safe class (it has no state) and there is a shared instance
of it in FacetComponent but its not clear why; it's a trivial class.  It has an extension
hook getFacetImplementation() with a default impl that simply instantiates a new SimpleFacet
instance.  Yet I found no case of this method being overridden, and it doesn't seem like an
extension point worth keeping.  It's not clear that the SimpleFacet behemoth was designed
to be substituted/extended.

Whatever I did would be somewhat disruptive to the relationship between these classes so I
took a stab at it any way.  In my patch, PivotFacetHelper extends SimpleFacet and is instantiated
similarly in FacetComponent.  I removed the dubious getFacetImplementation() method in favor
of simply referencing the current instance "this".  This also made it possible to remove some
parameters (which was getting a little out of control) since they are inherited fields now.
 I changed package access to protected to parseParams() and the fields it sets.  I also decided
to do a refactor rename there of "docs" to "docsOrig" and "base" to "docs" so that it's more
clear what's going on there.  It's not clear to me if references in this class to docsOrig
is an undiscovered bug or not.

The test demonstrates a filter query exclusion as well as "key" to add the data to the response
using a different name.  I noticed there is a "threads" performance tuning option that should
now work too.

> generates the following error : "undefined field {!ex=category}category_id"
> If you filter on subcategory_id, the facet.pivot result will contain only results from
this subcategory. It's a loss of function since you can't alter this behavior with local params.
