Subject Re: FacetRequest include residue

Hi Nicola,

There might be a way to do what you want, with some coding on your part. If
you're interested in counting the top-10 of the "Brand" facet, but also
return the count of "Brand/X", even if it's not in the top-10, then what
you should do is write code similar to this:

FacetArrays facetArrays = new FacetArrays();
int[] counts = facetArrays.getIntArray(); // hold onto the counts array, so
that it's not "released" by the Collector
FacetsCollector fc = new FacetsCollector(..., facetArrays); // tell the
collector to use your array, fc);
List<FacetResults> facetResults = fc.getFacetResults();

// now you should get the FacetResult of "Brand" and check if Brand/X is in
its FacetResultNodes (top-10)
// if not, do the following:
int brandXOrdinal = taxoReader.getOrdinal(new CategoryPath("Brand", "X");
int brandXCount = counts[brandXOrdinal];

// now you can build your final result with the count of Brand/X

Hope that helps
