Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5084) new field type - EnumField
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2013 23:18:48 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-5084:


1) there's still several sections in your patch that have a lot of reformatting making it
hard to see what exactly you've added.  (I realize that the formatting may not be 100% uniform
in all of these files, but the key to making patches easy to read is not to change anything
that does't *have* to be changed ... formatting changes should be done seperately and independently
from functionality changes)

2) could you please add a few unit tests to show how the type can be used when indexing/querying/faceting/returning
stored fields so it's more clear what this patch does?

3) I'm not sure that it makes sense to customize the response writers and the JavaBinCodec
to know about hte enum values -- it seems like it would make a lot more sense (and by much
simpler) to have clients just treat the enum values as strings

4) a lot of your code seems to be cut/paste from TrieField ... why can't the EnumField class
subclass TrieField to re-use this behavior (or worst case: wrap a TrieIntField similar to
how TrieDateField works)

> We have encountered a use case in our system where we have a few fields (Severity. Risk
etc) with a closed set of values, where the sort order for these values is pre-determined
but not lexicographic (Critical is higher than High). Generically this is very close to how
enums work.
> To implement, I have prototyped a new type of field: EnumField where the inputs are a
closed predefined  set of strings in a special configuration file (similar to currency.xml).
> The code is based on 4.2.1.
