Subject [jira] Commented: (NUTCH-134) Summarizer doesn't select the best snippets
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2005 20:03:08 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-134?page=comments#action_12359626 ] 

Doug Cutting commented on NUTCH-134:
------------------------------------

Can we yet replace Nutch's summarizer with the summarizer in Lucene's contrib directory? 
Are there features that Nutch requires that that does not yet implement?  It's a shame to
maintain two summarizers.  When I first wrote Nutch's summarizer there was no Lucene contrib
summarizer...

> Summarizer.java tries to select the best fragments from the input text, where the frequency
of query terms is the highest. However, the logic in line 223 is flawed in that the excerptSet.add()
operation will add new excerpts only if they are not already present - the test is performed
using the Comparator that compares only the numUniqueTokens. This means that if there are
two or more excerpts, which score equally high, only the first of them will be retained, and
the rest of equally-scoring excerpts will be discarded, in favor of other excerpts (possibly
lower scoring).
> To fix this the Set should be replaced with a List + a sort operation. To keep the relative
position of excerpts in the original order the Excerpt class should be extended with an "int
order" field, and the collected excerpts should be sorted in that order prior to adding them
to the summary.
