Subject Re: FieldSortedHitQueue enhancement
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2007 15:00:24 GMT
The duplicate check would just be on the doc ID. I'm using TreeSet to detect
duplicates with no noticeable affect on performance. The PQ only has to be
checked for a previous value IFF the element about to be inserted is
actually inserted and not dropped because it's less than the least value
already in there. So, the TreeSet is never bigger than the size of the PQ
(typically 25 to a few hundred items), not the size of all hits.
