Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-6278) Rationalise Scorer.freq()
Date Sat, 21 Feb 2015 17:26:11 GMT
Alan Woodward created LUCENE-6278:

             Summary: Rationalise Scorer.freq()
                 Key: LUCENE-6278
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Alan Woodward
            Priority: Minor

At the moment, Scorer.freq() does different things depending on the Scorer implementation:

* TermScorer and the phrase scorers return the frequency of that term or phrase in the current
document.  TermScorer.freq() is not actually called anywhere (apart from in a couple of tests),
and {X}PhraseScorer.freq() is only called in PhraseWeight.explain()
* The various Boolean scorers return the number of matching subscorers, and are used for coord

I think this is confusing.  I propose that we instead add a new coord() method to Scorer that
by default returns 1, and that is overridden by the boolean scorers; and that we just remove
freq() entirely.  PhraseWeight.explain() can call a package-private method on {X}PhraseScorer.
