Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8362) Add docValues support for TextField
Date Fri, 26 Jan 2018 22:43:00 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-8362:

FWIW, I've created 2 related issues that folks watching this Jira may want to look at:

* SOLR-11916 - proposes (w/patch) a SortableTextField subclass that would provide a straightforward
way for people index & search analyzed test content while still sorting on the original
string (via docValues
* SOLR-11917 - a very broad scope "hypothetical roadmap" were i've posted a lot of brain storming
related to the improving the "ease of use" to some common usescases i've seen in dealing with
text fields & analyzers that typical involves a lot of copyField work arrounds.  A big
part of that issue is discussing how to tackle configurablilty in terms of supporting docValues
on TextField and what analysis should be used there.

> At the last lucene/solr revolution, Toke asked a question about why TextField doesn't
support docValues.  The short answer is because no one ever added it, but the longer answer
was because we would have to think through carefully the _intent_ of supporting docValues
for  a "tokenized" field like TextField, and how to support various conflicting usecases where
they could be handy.
