Subject Re: Boost query vs function query in edismax query
Date Tue, 19 Jan 2016 10:41:27 GMT
You use boost functions when you wish to perform certain operations, like
mathematical (reciprocal, sq. root etc.) on the actual field value during
boosting.
In boost queries, all you can do is specify a field optionally along with a
particular value to boost on.
