Subject Re: multiValued filed vs separate fields
Date Mon, 19 May 2014 03:23:58 GMT
I'd go with 100 separate fields I think, it's a more "natural" mapping
and probably expresses the underlying structure better.

Besides, I'd expect the index to be smaller, you wouldn't be storing
the property name over and over and over...

Best,
Erick

the values are just property values.
