Subject RE: Legacy filter strategy in Lucene 6.0
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2018 08:04:27 GMT

IMHO: I'd split the whole code into a BooleanQuery with two filter clauses. The reverse index
based condition (term condition, e.g., TermInSetQuery) gets added as a Occur.FILTER and the
DocValues condition is a separate Occur.FILTER. If Lucene executes such a query, it would
use the more specific condition (based on cost) to lead the execution, which should be the
terms condition. The docvalues condition is then only checked for matches of the first.

But you can still go and implement the two-phase iterator, but I'd not do that.
