Subject Re: can i create filters of score range
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2011 21:17:41 GMT
thanks hoss... thats a real good explanation ..
well,  don care about the sort order i just want all of the docs .. and yes
score values may be duplicated which will deteriorate my search
before going into lucene doc id , i have got creationDate datetime field in
my index which i can use as page definition using filter query..
i have learned exposing lucene docid wont be a clever idea, as its again
relative to index instance.. where as my index date field will be unique
..and i can definitely create ranges with that..

i ahve got on more doubt .. if i use filter query each time will it result
in memory problem like that we see in deep paging issues..
