Class BooleanSimilarity


public class BooleanSimilarity extends Similarity
Simple similarity that gives terms a score that is equal to their query boost. This similarity is typically used with disabled norms since neither document statistics nor index statistics are used for scoring. That said, if norms are enabled, they will be computed the same way as SimilarityBase and BM25Similarity with discounted overlaps so that the Similarity can be changed after the index has been created.

      public long computeNorm(FieldInvertState state)
      Description copied from class: Similarity
      Computes the normalization value for a field, given the accumulated state of term processing for this field (see FieldInvertState).

      Matches in longer fields are less precise, so implementations of this method usually set smaller values when state.getLength() is large, and larger values when state.getLength() is small.

      Note that for a given term-document frequency, greater unsigned norms must produce scores that are lower or equal, ie. for two encoded norms n1 and n2 so that Long.compareUnsigned(n1, n2) > 0 then SimScorer.score(freq, n1) <= SimScorer.score(freq, n2) for any legal freq.

      0 is not a legal norm, so 1 is the norm that produces the highest scores.

    • scorer

      public Similarity.SimScorer scorer(float boost, CollectionStatistics collectionStats, TermStatistics... termStats)
      Description copied from class: Similarity
      Compute any collection-level weight (e.g. IDF, average document length, etc) needed for scoring a query.
      Specified by:
      scorer in class Similarity
      boost - a multiplicative factor to apply to the produces scores
      collectionStats - collection-level statistics, such as the number of tokens in the collection.
      termStats - term-level statistics, such as the document frequency of a term across the collection.
