Subject Re: Get matching fields from a BooleanQuery
Date Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:25:20 GMT
Hi Frederik,

Using explain should be fine for that use-case since you will only apply it
to the top hits. Otherwise you could use the low-level search APIs in order
to do this. It would look something like that if you want to find which
query among `queries` matches document `docID` (I did not check it compiles
but it should give the idea):

List<Query> queries;
int docID;
IndexSearcher searcher;
int leafIndex = ReaderUtil.subIndex(docID,
LeafReaderContext leaf = searcher.getIndexReader().leaves().get(leafIndex);
int leafDocID = docID - leaf.docBase;
for (Query query : queries) {
  Weight weight = searcher.createNormalizedWeight(query);
  Scorer scorer = weight.scorer(leaf);
  boolean matches = scorer.advance(leafDocID) == leafDocID;
