Class TermInSetQuery

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class TermInSetQuery
    extends Query
    implements Accountable
    Specialization for a disjunction over many terms that behaves like a ConstantScoreQuery over a BooleanQuery containing only BooleanClause.Occur.SHOULD clauses.

    For instance in the following example, both q1 and q2 would yield the same scores:

     Query q1 = new TermInSetQuery("field", new BytesRef("foo"), new BytesRef("bar"));
     BooleanQuery bq = new BooleanQuery();
     bq.add(new TermQuery(new Term("field", "foo")), Occur.SHOULD);
     bq.add(new TermQuery(new Term("field", "bar")), Occur.SHOULD);
     Query q2 = new ConstantScoreQuery(bq);

    When there are few terms, this query executes like a regular disjunction. However, when there are many terms, instead of merging iterators on the fly, it will populate a bit set with matching docs and return a Scorer over this bit set.

    NOTE: This query produces scores that are equal to its boost

      • rewrite

        public Query rewrite​(IndexReader reader)
                      throws IOException
        Description copied from class: Query
        Expert: called to re-write queries into primitive queries. For example, a PrefixQuery will be rewritten into a BooleanQuery that consists of TermQuerys.
        rewrite in class Query
      • visit

        public void visit​(QueryVisitor visitor)
        Description copied from class: Query
        Recurse through the query tree, visiting any child queries
        Specified by:
        visit in class Query
        visitor - a QueryVisitor to be called by each query in the tree
      • equals

        public boolean equals​(Object other)
        Description copied from class: Query
        Override and implement query instance equivalence properly in a subclass. This is required so that QueryCache works properly.

        Typically a query will be equal to another only if it's an instance of the same class and its document-filtering properties are identical that other instance. Utility methods are provided for certain repetitive code.

        Specified by:
        equals in class Query

      • hashCode

        public int hashCode()
        Description copied from class: Query
        Override and implement query hash code properly in a subclass. This is required so that QueryCache works properly.
        Specified by:
        hashCode in class Query
        See Also:
      • getTermData

        public PrefixCodedTerms getTermData()
        Returns the terms wrapped in a PrefixCodedTerms.
      • toString

        public String toString​(String defaultField)
        Description copied from class: Query
        Prints a query to a string, with field assumed to be the default field and omitted.
        Specified by:
        toString in class Query
      • ramBytesUsed

        public long ramBytesUsed()
        Description copied from interface: Accountable
        Return the memory usage of this object in bytes. Negative values are illegal.
        Specified by:
        ramBytesUsed in interface Accountable
      • createWeight

        public Weight createWeight​(IndexSearcher searcher,
                                   ScoreMode scoreMode,
                                   float boost)
                            throws IOException
        Description copied from class: Query
        Expert: Constructs an appropriate Weight implementation for this query.

        Only implemented by primitive queries, which re-write to themselves.

        createWeight in class Query
        scoreMode - How the produced scorers will be consumed.
        boost - The boost that is propagated by the parent queries.
