Subject Sorting by NumericField not working
Date Fri, 25 Mar 2011 14:23:16 GMT

I'm trying to sort results by a NumericField but the results do not sort
(still appear in default score order). The NumericField was indexed using
the code below:

NumericField field = new NumericField(name,
NumericUtils.PRECISION_STEP_DEFAULT, Field.Store.YES, false);

The searcher uses the following code to attempt to sort at search:

Sort sortBySize = new Sort(new SortField[] { new SortField("subj",
SortField.INT) });
TopFieldDocs topDocs =, null, limit, sortBySize);

Any ideas please? Is this the right method of sorting using a NumericField?
