Subject Re: Atomic Update w/ Date Copy Field
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 13:51:33 GMT
It looks like the issue has to do with the Date object. When the document is
fully updated (with the date specified) the field is created with a String
object so everything is indexed as it appears. When the document is
partially updated (with the date omitted) the field is re-created using the
previously stored Date object which takes the "toString" representation
(i.e. EEE MMM dd HH:mm:ss zzz yyyy).

I ended up creating a DateTextField which extends TextField and simply
overrides the "FieldType.createField(SchemaField, Object, float)" method. I
then check for a Date instance and format as necessary.

Any ideas on a better approach or does it sound like this is the way to go?
I wasn't sure if this could be accomplished in a filter or some other way.
