Subject Re: Fuzzy membership of a term to the document
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 17:48:23 GMT

:    I want to change the Lucene's similarity in a way that I can add Fuzzy
: memberships to the terms of a document. Thus, TF value of a term in one
: document is not always 1, it can add 0.7 to the value of the TF ( (In my
: application, each term is contained in a document at most once). This
: membership value is available before index time.

At first glance, i would suspect that what you really wnat to look at is 
using payloads, but i'm not certain, because you've been focused on your 
presumed solution to the problem, without supplying any details on
what your end goal is...
XY Problem

Your question appears to be an "XY Problem" ... that is: you are dealing
with "X", you are assuming "Y" will help you, and you are asking about "Y"
without giving more details about the "X" so that we can understand the
full issue.  Perhaps the best solution doesn't involve "Y" at all?
