Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4285) Improve FST API usability for mere mortals
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 18:58:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4285?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13470560#comment-13470560

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4285:
-------------------------------------

I rather like this: I don't think its common to have an empty FST, its usually indicative
of a bug or misconfiguration.

There is also some code in lucene that uses this return value, e.g. SynonymFilterFactory,
if you give it a file with no actual 
synonyms entries it just returns the underlying stream rather than decorating it with a useless
synonyms filter.

> FST technology is something that has brought amazing advances to Lucene, yet the API
is hard to use for the vast majority of users like me.  I know that performance of FSTs is
really important, but surely a lot can be done without sacrificing that.
