Subject RE: lucene-4.0: QueryWrapperFilter & docBase
Date Mon, 08 Oct 2012 09:28:29 GMT

This is a known problem currently. I think there is already an issue open, so this was not
solved for 4.0 (I don't have the issue no available at the moment).

My plan to fix this is to make Filters behave like queries (with a rewrite() method), so the
correct context can be passed to a "rewritten" filter (when QueryWrapperFilter rewrites, it
rewrites also the query). The current approach is for performance reasons, because without
rewrite, you would have no persistent "state" information between index segments, so the Query
has to be rewritten on the top-level index for every segment again. By the current approach,
the query is only rewritten against the current segment with a private IndexSearcher. By that
process the docBase gets lost. So currently this does not work.

I would recommend to *not* use QueryWrapperFilter and instead wrap with ConstantScoreQuery
and add it to the query as a Boolean MUST clause. In that case it should work fine. There
is no performance increase by using QueryWrapperFilter, so no reason to use it.
