Subject Re: Getting the number of all hits for the SpanQuery
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 16:15:00 GMT
Hi again!

So far I think that the easiest way to get all span matches is indeed this method (Lucene
v 4.1 code):
public Spans getSpans(final AtomicReaderContext context, Bits acceptDocs, Map<Term,TermContext>

But there is no annotation for this code except 'for internal use only', and the input parameters
do not make sense to me.

What are these objects for, and how does one build them?

Best Regards,
Igor Shalyminov
