Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8396) Investigate PointField to replace NumericField types
Date Sat, 26 Mar 2016 00:28:25 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-8396:

I have checked into how IntField evolved, because there are similarities there to what's being
discussed here.

In 4.0.0, IntField was still an active type, and none of the Lucene classes it used were deprecated
either.  IntField was not deprecated until 4.8 -- but the main types in the collection1 example
schema had been changed to the Trie types a LONG time before that.  I looked as far back as
the 3.5.0 example and it was already using Trie.

With this new information, I think what you guys have been trying to say (and I wasn't catching)
is that the Numeric types in Lucene are so fundamental that they should NOT be renamed/deprecated
until at least 7.0, then they can be removed in 8.0 in accordance with normal deprecation

in most respects. We should explore the benefits of using it in Solr and hence, if appropriate,
switch over to using them.
