Subject Clarfication on using Docvalues
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2017 16:51:10 GMT
Hi all,

I'm trying to implement sort using DocValues.
As SortedDocValue is equivalent of pre-sorted BinaryDocvalue and
SortedNumericDocvalue is pre-sorted version of NumericDocvalue

I'm able to sort on NumericDocvalue Field but not on BinaryDocValue Field
Why Lucene allows sorting NumericDocValue field not in BinaryDocValue
though both internally stored as byte array

BinaryDocValue has field inverting cost
Does NumericDocValue doesn't have any inverting cost ??

Is there any other reason to support on NumericDocvalues
