Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2139) Cleanup and Improvement of Spatial Contrib
Date Wed, 01 Dec 2010 09:38:11 GMT


Simon Willnauer commented on LUCENE-2139:

bq. Pity to remove code before replacing one is still not here : what will the users do ?
While I can understand you reasons why this is a pity i have to say that the code you are
referring to is a big mess currently. In 4.0 we have the possibility to get rid of that stuff
an let folks develop something cleaner, maybe better, tested, documented and already integrated
(Solr).  AFAIK there is already a whole bunch of stuff in solr related to geo search and we
can move that stuff out into a module to make it available to Lucene users too. 

so here is my +1 for closing the issues, deprecate everything in 3.0  nuke spatial in 4.0.
Chris, do you want to go ahead and create the issues?

> The current spatial contrib can be improved by adding documentation, tests, removing
unused classes and code, repackaging the classes and improving the performance of the distance
filtering.  The latter will incorporate the multi-threaded functionality introduced in LUCENE-1732.
> Other improvements involve adding better support for different distance units, different
distance calculators and different data formats (whether it be lat/long fields, geohashes,
or something else in the future).
> Patch to be added soon.
