Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6228) Do not expose full-fledged scorers in LeafCollector.setScorer
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2015 14:59:12 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-6228:

another maybe more intuitive option is Scorable (interface) and keep Scorer as is, just implementing
the interface.

> Currently LeafCollector.setScorer takes a Scorer, which I don't like because several
methods should never be called in the context of a Collector (like nextDoc or advance).
> I think it's even more trappy for methods that might seem to work in some particular
cases but will not work in the general case, like getChildren which will not work if you have
a specialized BulkScorer or iterating over positions which will not work if you are in a MultiCollector
and another leaf collector consumes positions too.
> So I think we should restrict what can be seen from a collector to avoid such traps.
