Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-6445) Highlighter TokenSources simplification; just one getAnyTokenStream()
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 18:38:59 GMT
David Smiley created LUCENE-6445:

             Summary: Highlighter TokenSources simplification; just one getAnyTokenStream()
                 Key: LUCENE-6445
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: modules/highlighter
            Reporter: David Smiley
            Assignee: David Smiley

The Highlighter "TokenSources" class has quite a few utility methods pertaining to getting
a TokenStream from either term vectors or analyzed text.  I think it's too much:
* some go to term vectors, some don't.  But if you don't want to go to term vectors, then
it's quite easy for the caller to invoke the Analyzer for the field value, and to get that
field value.
* Some methods return null, some never null; I forget which at a glance.
* Some methods read the Document (to get a field value) from the IndexReader, some don't.
 Furthermore, it's not an ideal place to get the doc since your app might be using an IndexSearcher
with a document cache (e.g. SolrIndexSearcher).
* None of the methods accept a Fields instance from term vectors as a parameter.  Based on
how Lucene's term vector format works, this is a performance trap if you don't re-use an instance
across fields on the document that you're highlighting.
