Subject Re: How to Update Value of One Field of a Document in Index?
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 04:35:16 GMT
My schema: id, name, checksum, body, notes, date

I'd like for a user to be able to add notes to the notes field, and not have to re-index the
document (since the body field may contain 100MB of text).  Some ideas:

1) How about creating another core which only contains id, checksum, and notes?  Then, "updating"
(delete followed by add) wouldn't be that painful?

2) What about using a multValued field?  Could you just keep adding values as the user enters
more notes?
