Subject Indexing a long list
Date Sun, 31 Mar 2013 12:21:19 GMT
Hi All,

Suppose I need to index a property whose value is a long list of terms. For

    someProperty = ["v1", "v2", .... , "v1000000"]

Please note that I could drop the leading "v" and index these as numbers
instead of strings.

But the question is what's the best practice in Lucene when dealing with a
case like this? I need to be able to retrieve the list. This makes methink
that I need to store it. And I suppose that the list could be stored in the
index itself or in the "content" to which the index points.

So there are really two parts to this question:

1. Lucene "best practices" for long list
2. Where to store such a list

Thanks for your help.
