Subject Two differently sorted result sets from the same search
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 20:59:25 GMT
Hi all,

I need to find a couple of result sets at the same time from the same
search-criteria. The two sets are sorted according different sort-criteria.
>From both I need just the few top N results, but anyway, because of business
rules, I need to process the entire hit set for the search. Till now I have
implemented this search for just one result set on top of custom
TopFieldDocCollector, Filter and Sort (w/ custom ScoreDocComparator). But
now, having to generate the two different sets, I see two choices:

1) Keep the same implementation, but search twice, switching the Sort on
each search. Here not only the search is done twice but the HitCollector
iterates along all documentIds twice also.

2) Instead of a TopFieldDocCollector use some kind of bounded priority queue
optimized for top-N results. With a HitCollector, a Filter and two of these
queues it's easy and efficient to find both result sets on one simple pass.
Do you know of a good implementation of this data structure? This seems nice
it has some license issues. Is there something similar that I can
from lucene sources?

Any other suggestion?

Thank you very much in advance.
