Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4764) Faster but more RAM/Disk consuming DocValuesFormat for facets
Date Tue, 12 Feb 2013 15:01:20 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4764:

I'm still not sure what's the best (or common) way to work w/ Codecs. When do you create your
own FilterCodec and override the relevant method, and when are you expected to extend another

The rule is that an index needs to be self-describing: basically I should be able to open
any index if i have the right stuff in my classpath.

This would be somewhat of a burden for users who just want to change their "id" field to use
a different postings format (they would have to make a whole codec with their own unique name),
and so on.

So Lucene42Codec uses PerField[Postings/DocValuesFormat] (note this is final!), which separately
record the name of the format used on a per-field basis.

Because of this, its ok that it not final and exposes these hooks to custom postings/docvalues
per-field, because it writes the name of those formats into the index for the field.
