Subject Re: mandatory and optional fields in the dismaxrequesthandler
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2007 07:19:25 GMT

: Is it possible to specify precisely one or more mandatory fields in a
: DismaxRequestHandler?

what would the semantics making a field mandatory mean?  considering your
specific example...

:      <str name="qf">
:         text^0.5 features^1.0 name^1.2 sku^1.5 id^10.0 manu^1.1 cat^1.4
:      </str>
:      <str name="bla>
:        +text +feature name manu
:     <str>
: where 'text' and 'feature' are mandatory and 'name' and 'manu' are
: optional fields.

if text and feature are mandatory but name and manu are not, how are the
other fields in the qf treated?

if the q param is:  albino elephant  ... what would it mean that text and
feature are mandatory?  do both words have to appear in text and in
feature, or just one in each?
