Class FilteredDocIdSetIterator

  • public abstract class FilteredDocIdSetIterator
    extends DocIdSetIterator
    Abstract decorator class of a DocIdSetIterator implementation that provides on-demand filter/validation mechanism on an underlying DocIdSetIterator.

      • match

        protected abstract boolean match​(int doc)
                                  throws IOException
        Validation method to determine whether a docid should be in the result set.
        doc - docid to be tested
        true if input docid should be in the result set, false otherwise.

      • advance

        public int advance​(int target)
                    throws IOException
        Description copied from class: DocIdSetIterator
        Advances to the first beyond the current whose document number is greater than or equal to target, and returns the document number itself. Exhausts the iterator and returns DocIdSetIterator.NO_MORE_DOCS if target is greater than the highest document number in the set.

        The behavior of this method is undefined when called with target ≤ current , or after the iterator has exhausted. Both cases may result in unpredicted behavior.

        When target > current it behaves as if written:

         int advance(int target) {
           int doc;
           while ((doc = nextDoc()) < target) {
           return doc;
        Some implementations are considerably more efficient than that.

        NOTE: this method may be called with DocIdSetIterator.NO_MORE_DOCS for efficiency by some Scorers. If your implementation cannot efficiently determine that it should exhaust, it is recommended that you check for that value in each call to this method.

      • cost

        public long cost()
        Description copied from class: DocIdSetIterator
        Returns the estimated cost of this DocIdSetIterator.

        This is generally an upper bound of the number of documents this iterator might match, but may be a rough heuristic, hardcoded value, or otherwise completely inaccurate.
