Class PointRangeQuery

  • public abstract class PointRangeQuery
    extends Query
    Abstract class for range queries against single or multidimensional points such as IntPoint.

    This is for subclasses and works on the underlying binary encoding: to create range queries for lucene's standard Point types, refer to factory methods on those classes, e.g. IntPoint.newRangeQuery() for fields indexed with IntPoint.

    For a single-dimensional field this query is a simple range query; in a multi-dimensional field it's a box shape.

        Expert: create a multidimensional range query for point values.
        field - field name. must not be null.
        lowerPoint - lower portion of the range (inclusive).
        upperPoint - upper portion of the range (inclusive).
        numDims - number of dimensions.
        IllegalArgumentException - if field is null, or if lowerValue.length != upperValue.length

      • equals

        public final boolean equals(Object o)
        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.

        equals in class Query

      • toString

        public final String toString(String field)
        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
      • toString

        protected abstract String toString(int dimension,
                                           byte[] value)
        Returns a string of a single value in a human-readable format for debugging. This is used by Query.toString().
        dimension - dimension of the particular value
        value - single value, never null
        human readable value for debugging
