Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-236) Field collapsing
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2009 08:34:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12775350#action_12775350
] 

Martijn van Groningen commented on SOLR-236:
--------------------------------------------

With the current patch if you try to collapse on a field that is tokenized or multivalued
an exception is thrown indicating that you cannot do that and the search is cancelled. What
I guess is that when the search results are retrieved from the shards on the master a NPE
is thrown because the shard result is not there. This is a limitation in itself, but it boils
down to the fact how the FieldCache handles such field types (or at least how I think the
FieldCache handles it).

I think it is good idea to share your patch and from there we might be able to get the change
in a proper manner. So others will also benefit from quasi-distributed field collapsing.

Anyhow to properly implement distributed field collapsing the distributed methods have to
be overriden in the collapse component, so that is where I would start. We might then also
include the collapse_count in the response.

> This patch include a new feature called "Field collapsing".
> "Used in order to collapse a group of results with similar value for a given field to
a single entry in the result set. Site collapsing is a special case of this, where all results
for a given web site is collapsed into one or two entries in the result set, typically with
an associated "more documents from this site" link. See also Duplicate detection."
> http://www.fastsearch.com/glossary.aspx?m=48&amid=299
> The implementation add 3 new query parameters (SolrParams):
> "collapse.field" to choose the field used to group results
> "collapse.type" normal (default value) or adjacent
> "collapse.max" to select how many continuous results are allowed before collapsing
> TODO (in progress):
> - More documentation (on source code)
> - Test cases
> Two patches:
> - "field_collapsing.patch" for current development version
> - "field_collapsing_1.1.0.patch" for Solr-1.1.0
> P.S.: Feedback and misspelling correction are welcome ;-)
