Subject Re: Question on number of fields in a document
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2010 13:43:06 GMT
There's no requirement that all documents have the same
fields, Lucene is fine with different docs having different
fields.

There's no limit on the number of different fields allowed
that I know of, but I'm sure someone will chime in if there
is....
