Class MultiFields

All Implemented Interfaces:

public final class MultiFields extends Fields
Provides a single Fields term index view over an IndexReader. This is useful when you're interacting with an IndexReader implementation that consists of sequential sub-readers (eg DirectoryReader or MultiReader) and you must treat it as a LeafReader.

NOTE: for composite readers, you'll get better performance by gathering the sub readers using IndexReader.getContext() to get the atomic leaves and then operate per-LeafReader, instead of using this class.

NOTE: This API is for internal purposes only and might change in incompatible ways in the next release.

    • size

      public int size()
      Description copied from class: Fields
      Returns the number of fields or -1 if the number of distinct field names is unknown. If >= 0, Fields.iterator() will return as many field names.
