Subject query norm understanding when we use term boosting during search time
Date Fri, 17 Jun 2016 09:30:28 GMT
Hi All,

i have read some discussions on impact of querynorm values in lucene score
when we specify more boosting.

Impact is, if boosting increases, querynorm decreases a lot, and so more
boosting does not results in final lucene score

Consider an example like, i need to order results based on given boosting
of terms( in query ) irrespective of lucene relevance calculation.. Setting
querynorm to 1 achieves the same... But resulted in very big numbers in
score value... My use case is solved..

But i need to understand what i do is recommended or not?? is there any
possibility of inconsistency expected ? Any pointers is much appreciated...

Thank you :-)
