> Expressions are geared at defining an alternative ranking function (e.g. incorporating
the text relevance score and other field values/ranking
> signals). So they are conceptually much more like ElasticSearch's scripting support (
than solr's function queries.
> Some additional notes:
> * In addition to referring to other fields, they can also refer to other expressions,
so they can be used as "computed fields".
> * You can rank documents easily by multiple expressions (its a SortField at the end),
e.g. Sort by year descending, then some function of score price and time ascending.
> * The provided javascript expression syntax is much more efficient than using a scripting
engine, because it does not have dynamic typing (compiles to .class files that work on doubles).
Performance is similar to writing a custom FieldComparator yourself, but much easier to do.
> * We have solr integration to contribute in the future, but this is just the standalone
lucene part as a start. Since lucene has no schema, it includes an implementation of Bindings
(SimpleBindings) that maps variable names to SortField's or other expressions.
