Subject Re: Calculate Term Frequency

Erick, Solr termfreq implementation also uses DocsEnum with the assumption that freq are called
on ascending
doc IDs which is valid when scoring from from the hit list. If freq is requested for an out
of order doc, a new
DocsEnum has to be created.

Bianca, can you explain your use case in more details? What did you mean by having a new document?
A new
document is added to the index? Then you already have to reopen the searcher/reader anyway
to get a new

Hmmm, I'm not at all an expert here, but Solr has a function
query "termfreq" that does what you're doing I think? I wonder
if the code for that function query would be a good place to
copy (or even make use of)? See TermFreqValueSource...

Maybe not helpful at all, but...
