Class FingerprintFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Closeable, AutoCloseable


    public class FingerprintFilter
    extends TokenFilter
    Filter outputs a single token which is a concatenation of the sorted and de-duplicated set of input tokens. This can be useful for clustering/linking use cases.
    • Constructor Detail

      • FingerprintFilter

        public FingerprintFilter(TokenStream input,
                                 int maxOutputTokenSize,
                                 char separator)
        Create a new FingerprintFilter with control over all settings
        Parameters:
        input - the source of tokens to be summarized into a single token
        maxOutputTokenSize - the maximum length of the summarized output token. If exceeded, no output token is emitted
        separator - the character used to separate tokens combined into the single output token
    • Method Detail

      • incrementToken

        public final boolean incrementToken()
                                     throws IOException
        Description copied from class: TokenStream
        Consumers (i.e., IndexWriter) use this method to advance the stream to the next token. Implementing classes must implement this method and update the appropriate AttributeImpls with the attributes of the next token.

        The producer must make no assumptions about the attributes after the method has been returned: the caller may arbitrarily change it. If the producer needs to preserve the state for subsequent calls, it can use AttributeSource.captureState() to create a copy of the current attribute state.

        This method is called for every token of a document, so an efficient implementation is crucial for good performance. To avoid calls to AttributeSource.addAttribute(Class) and AttributeSource.getAttribute(Class), references to all AttributeImpls that this stream uses should be retrieved during instantiation.

        To ensure that filters and consumers know which attributes are available, the attributes must be added during instantiation. Filters and consumers are not required to check for availability of attributes in TokenStream.incrementToken().

        Specified by:
        incrementToken in class TokenStream
        Returns:
        false for end of stream; true otherwise
        Throws:
        IOException
      • end

        public final void end()
                       throws IOException
        Description copied from class: TokenFilter
        This method is called by the consumer after the last token has been consumed, after TokenStream.incrementToken() returned false (using the new TokenStream API). Streams implementing the old API should upgrade to use this feature.

        This method can be used to perform any end-of-stream operations, such as setting the final offset of a stream. The final offset of a stream might differ from the offset of the last token eg in case one or more whitespaces followed after the last token, but a WhitespaceTokenizer was used.

        Additionally any skipped positions (such as those removed by a stopfilter) can be applied to the position increment, or any adjustment of other attributes where the end-of-stream value may be important.

        If you override this method, always call super.end().

        NOTE: The default implementation chains the call to the input TokenStream, so be sure to call super.end() first when overriding this method.

        Overrides:
        end in class TokenFilter
        Throws:
        IOException - If an I/O error occurs
      • reset

        public void reset()
                   throws IOException
        This method is called by a consumer before it begins consumption using TokenStream.incrementToken().

        Resets this stream to a clean state. Stateful implementations must implement this method so that they can be reused, just as if they had been created fresh.

        If you override this method, always call super.reset(), otherwise some internal state will not be correctly reset (e.g., Tokenizer will throw IllegalStateException on further usage).

        NOTE: The default implementation chains the call to the input TokenStream, so be sure to call super.reset() when overriding this method.

        Overrides:
        reset in class TokenFilter
        Throws:
        IOException
