Subject Re: Searching with access controls
Date Fri, 11 Aug 2006 03:54:29 GMT
I was just reading about the limit on boolean operators in a query (it
seems to default to 1024 in Solr).

Using option 2 would mean that a user can't be in any more than 1024
communities (assuming no other boolean logic in the query).

Potentially a huge number of communities (10,000+ ?). Each community
could easily have say 100 documents each, and there's some other
"global" type documents too.

Say 500,000 - 1,000,000 documents?

What do you mean by "You could also store user documents in the
collection to avoid passing the security info" ?

I'm not really a Java programmer of any significance, but I work with
people who are, and I can bully them into helping out. (I'm a Perl guy
myself).

Thanks,
