Subject [jira] Resolved: (LUCENE-762) [PATCH] Efficiently retrieve sizes of field values
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 03:20:05 GMT


Grant Ingersoll resolved LUCENE-762.

    Resolution: Fixed

I have committed the original patch.  All tests pass.  In the end, I could not find a way
I felt comfortable with for getting rid of the if-then-else clause in FieldsReader.  I did
add a TODO item there to remind us to go back and take a look at it again later.

Since the if clauses are ordered according to their most common usages (I think), I don't
think there will be much of a performance issue w/ the current approach.

> Sometimes an application would like to know how large a document is before retrieving
it.  This can be important for memory management or choosing between algorithms, especially
in cases where documents might be very large.
> This patch extends the existing FieldSelector mechanism with two new FieldSelectorResults:
 SIZE and SIZE_AND_BREAK.  SIZE creates fields on the retrieved document that store field
sizes instead of actual values.  SIZE_AND_BREAK is especially efficient if one field comprises
the bulk of the document size (e.g., the body field) and can thus be used as a reasonable
size approximation.
