Subject Re: Numeric fields and payload
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 19:29:52 GMT

: is it possible to store (text) payload to numeric fields (class 
: solr.TrieDoubleField)?  My goal is to store measure units to numeric 
: features - e.g. '1.5 cm' - and to use faceted search with these fields. 
: But the field type doesn't allow analyzers to add the payload data. I 
: want to avoid database access to load the units. I'm using Solr 4.2 .

I'm not sure if it's possible to add payloads to Trie fields, but even if 
there is i don't think you really want that for your usecase -- i think it 
would make a lot more sense to normalize your units so you do consistent 
sorting, range queries, and faceting on the values regardless of wether 
it's 100cm or 1000mm or 1m.
