Subject RE: Choosing specific fields for suggestions in SpellCheckerComponent
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 14:56:12 GMT
I assume here you've got a spellcheck field like this:

<field name="Spelling_Dictionary" type="text_general"/>
<copyField source="field1" dest="Spelling_Dictionary" />
<copyField source="field2" dest="Spelling_Dictionary" />
<copyField source="field3" dest="Spelling_Dictionary" />
<copyField source="field4" dest="Spelling_Dictionary" /> that a check against "Spelling_Dictionary" always checks all 4, right?  This is the
only way I know to approximate having it spellcheck across multiple fields.  And as you have
found, short of creating several separate versions of "Spelling_Dictionary", there is no way
to specify the individual fields a la carte.  Although not supported, some of the work was
done as part of SOLR-2993.

Your best bet now is to use "Spelling_Dictionary" as a master dictionary then use "maxCollationTries"
to have it generate collations that only pertain the what the user actually searched against.
 This is less efficient and may not work well (or at all) with Suggest.

Subject: Choosing specific fields for suggestions in SpellCheckerComponent

Hi everyone,

I've been searching about how to configure the SpellCheckerComponent in 
Solr 4.0 to support suggestion queries based on s subset of the 
configured fields in schema.xml. Let's say the spell checking is 
configured to use these 4 fields:

<field name="field1" type="text_general"/>
<field name="field2" type="text_general"/>
<field name="field3" type="text_general"/>
<field name="field4" type="text_general"/>

I'd like to know if there's any possibility to dynamically set the 
SpellCheckerComponent to suggest terms using just fields "field2" and 
"field3" instead of the default behavior, which always includes 
suggestions across the 4 defined fields.

Thanks in advance for any help!
