Thanks for your quick reply. So I have to change the return value of
the method storedFieldsFormat to a custom
CompressingStoredFieldsFormat. Then, I set the codec in the
IndexWriterConfig for the IndexWriter. If this is correct, my problem
is solved.

Next question that comes up: If I have different IndexWriters writing
in the same index with different codecs, is the codec for the fields
somehow resolved for an IndexReader? Or does every instance of an
IndexWriter change the stored fields to its codec when committing and
closing the index?

Regards,
  Bernd
