>                 Key: LUCENE-6302
>                 URL:
>             Project: Lucene - Core
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: modules/expressions
>    Affects Versions: 4.10.3
>            Reporter: Itamar Syn-Hershko
> Lucene Expressions are great, but they don't allow for date math. More specifically,
they don't allow to infer date parts from a numeric representation of a date stamp, nor they
allow to parse strings representations to dates.
> Some of the features requested here easy to implement via ValueSource implementation
(and potentially minor changes to the lexer definition) , some are more involved. I'll be
happy if we could get half of those in, and will be happy to work on a PR for the parts we
can agree on.
> The items we will be happy to have:
> - A now() function (with or without TZ support) to return a current long date/time value
as numeric, that we could use against indexed datetime fields (which are infact numerics)
> - Parsing methods - to allow to express datetime as strings, and / or read it from stored
fields and parse it from there. Parse errors would render a value of zero.
> - Given a numeric value, allow to specify it is a date value and then infer date parts
- e.g. Date(1424963520).Year == 2015, or Date(now()) - Date(1424963520).Year. Basically methods
which return numerics but internally create and use Date objects.
