Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8362) Add docValues support for TextField
Date Sat, 27 Jan 2018 03:25:00 GMT


Joel Bernstein commented on SOLR-8362:

I wanted to comment on re-indexing text fields with streaming expressions. There is a straight
forward approach that does not require doc values described here:



I'm not convinced that putting text fields into docValues is the way to go. The *significantTerms*,
*features* and *train*  streaming expressions can do some really nice things with text fields
in the inverted index. In the next release, the new *termVectors* expression allows you to
create on-the-fly tf-idf *term vectors* which can be used all for all kinds of text analytics.

> 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.
