Subject Re: How to send an OpenBitSet object from Solr server?
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2011 15:58:23 GMT

: We have a need to query and fetch millions of document ids from a Solr 3.3
: index and convert the same to a BitSet. To speed things up, we want to
: convert these document ids into OpenBitSet on the server side, put them into
: the response object and read the same on the client side.

This smells like an XY Problem ... what do you intend to do with this 
BitSet on the client side?  the lucene doc ids are meaningless outside of 
hte server, and for any given doc, the id could change from one request to 
the next -- so how would having this data on the clinet be of any use to 
XY Problem

Your question appears to be an "XY Problem" ... that is: you are dealing
with "X", you are assuming "Y" will help you, and you are asking about "Y"
without giving more details about the "X" so that we can understand the
full issue.  Perhaps the best solution doesn't involve "Y" at all?
