Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENENET-612) SERIOUS issues with PerFieldAnalyzerWrapper in 4.8
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2019 14:09:00 GMT


Shad Storhaug commented on LUCENENET-612:

The documentation has now been updated to inform end users that the dictionary implementation
chosen will provide the desired behavior. This issue can be closed after the next release
after beta00006.

I do this might be worth noting.
> PerFieldAnalyzerWrapper has been "improved" in 4.8 and now uses a PER_FIELD_REUSE_STRATEGY
which means that the tokenized fields will be stored in a dictionary, so If you have multiple
fields with the same name in your document, then you will only be able to index the very first
one that makes it into that dictionary.
> So the problem with this is that you can potentially lose thousands of terms in your
index, which could cause your searches to be of very low quality.

> There are 2 issues that need to be resolved to address this:
> 1. The documentation for {{PerFieldAnalyzerWrapper}} should be updated to inform users
that if they need to use multiple dictionary keys with the same name, they should use {{TreeDictionary<K,
> 2. {{TreeDictionary<K, V>}} does not currently implement {{System.Collections.Generic.IDictionary<TKey,
TValue>}}, as it was brought over from C5 as-is.
> Another thing of note is that C5 has added support for .NET Standard 1.0 since this was
brought over.
> However, there still seems to be a few problems that make the C5 types incompatible with
Lucene.Net, most notably the lack of support for {{System.Collections.Generic.IDictionary<TKey,
TValue>}} in {{TreeDictionary}} and {{System.Collections.Generic.ISet<T>}} in {{TreeSet}}
(the latter of which has already been patched in {{Lucene.Net.Support.TreeSet}}).
> I [reported|] the lack of support for {{ISet<T>}}
on 6-Nov-2016, but although the maintainers agree this should be done, it still hasn't been.
Perhaps a PR to the C5 project is the way to get this done, which would allow us to finally
remove these collection copies from Lucene.Net.Support and add a package dependency on C5.
> Another option is to shop around to see if there are any other generic TreeSet/TreeDictionary
implementations that have popped up since late 2016 that we can check for compatibility.
