Subject Using MLT feature
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2011 09:16:12 GMT


I would like to hear your opinion about the MLT feature and if it's a
good solution to what I need to implement.


My index has fields like: headline, body and medianame.

What I need to do is, before adding a new doc, verify if a similar doc
exists for this media.


My idea is to use the MorelikeThisHandler
( in the following way:


For each new doc, perform a MLT search with q= medianame and

If no similar docs are found than I can safely add the doc.


Is this feasible using the MLT handler? Is it a good approach? Are there
a better way to perform this comparison?


Thank you for your help.


Best regards,


Frederico Azeiteiro
