Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1350) SnowballFilter resets the payload
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2008 16:16:51 GMT


Doron Cohen commented on LUCENE-1350:

These are interesting points to consider. 

Let's look at the two cases reuse and non-reuse.

The current SnowballFilter implements the non-reuse method next(). It actually clones,  just
without using clone(). So I still think that fixing it to use clone is acceptable. Hope you
agree with this.

(Btw, I checked LUCENE-1142 ("Updated Snowball package") - there too the non-reuse version
is used.)

For the reuse case, i.e. next(Token), there is a distinction between *consumers* and *producers*
(in TokenStream API) - only consumers invoke clear(), and then set everything. Filters are
consumers, so clear() is not in place. 

(As a side comment, I think an explicit call like setEndOffset() is somewhat clearer than
a method with 3 int args.)

> Passing tokens with payloads through SnowballFilter results in tokens with no payloads.
> A workaround for this is to apply stemming first and only then run whatever logic creates
the payload, but this is not always convenient.
> Patch to follow that preserves the payload.
