Subject Re: Need help with filtering
Date Mon, 22 Nov 2004 18:34:17 GMT
Hello again,

I've modified DateFilter to filter out document IDs as suggested. All seems to
be running well until I tried a specific test case. All my documents have IDs
in the 400,000 range. If I set my lower limit to 5, nothing comes back. After
examining the code, I found the issue to be at the following line:
TermEnum enumerator = reader.terms(new Term(field, start));

Is there a way to retrieve a set of documents with IDs using a Integer
comparison versus a String comparison? If I set "start" to 0, I get everything,
but that's not very efficient.

Thanks in advance,
