Subject Re: Indexing a long list

The first question is how do you want to access the data? What do you want 
your queries to look like?

What is the larger context? Are these properties of larger documents? Are 
there more than one per document? Etc.

Why not just store the property as a tokenized field? Then you can query 
whether v(i) or v(j) are or are not present as keywords.

Subject: Indexing a long list

Hi All,

Suppose I need to index a property whose value is a long list of terms. For

    someProperty = ["v1", "v2", .... , "v1000000"]

Please note that I could drop the leading "v" and index these as numbers
instead of strings.

But the question is what's the best practice in Lucene when dealing with a
case like this? I need to be able to retrieve the list. This makes methink
that I need to store it. And I suppose that the list could be stored in the
index itself or in the "content" to which the index points.

So there are really two parts to this question:

1. Lucene "best practices" for long list
2. Where to store such a list

Thanks for your help.
