Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5596) Support for index/search large numeric field
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2014 07:27:17 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-5596:

It would be great if we did that, and somehow fit numerictokenstream to be more "ordinary"
in the analysis chain, such that e.g. the queryparser getRangeQuery could just do the right
thing out of box...

> Currently if an number is larger than Long.MAX_VALUE, we can't index/search that in lucene
as a number. For example, IPv6 address is an 128 bit number, so we can't index that as a numeric
field and do numeric range query etc.
> It would be good to support BigInteger / BigDecimal
> I've tried use BigInteger for IPv6 in Elasticsearch and that works fine, but there are
still lots of things to do
