Class FSTCompletionLookup

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Accountable


    public class FSTCompletionLookup
    extends Lookup
    implements Accountable
    An adapter from Lookup API to FSTCompletion.

    This adapter differs from FSTCompletion in that it attempts to discretize any "weights" as passed from in InputIterator.weight() to match the number of buckets. For the rationale for bucketing, see FSTCompletion.

    Note:Discretization requires an additional sorting pass.

    The range of weights for bucketing/ discretization is determined by sorting the input by weight and then dividing into equal ranges. Then, scores within each range are assigned to that bucket.

    Note that this means that even large differences in weights may be lost during automaton construction, but the overall distinction between "classes" of weights will be preserved regardless of the distribution of weights.

    For fine-grained control over which weights are assigned to which buckets, use FSTCompletion directly or TSTLookup, for example.

    • Constructor Detail

      • FSTCompletionLookup

        public FSTCompletionLookup()
        This constructor should only be used to read a previously saved suggester.
      • FSTCompletionLookup

        public FSTCompletionLookup(Directory tempDir,
                                   String tempFileNamePrefix,
                                   int buckets,
                                   boolean exactMatchFirst)
        This constructor prepares for creating a suggested FST using the build(InputIterator) method.
        Parameters:
        buckets - The number of weight discretization buckets (see FSTCompletion for details).
        exactMatchFirst - If true exact matches are promoted to the top of the suggestions list. Otherwise they appear in the order of discretized weight and alphabetical within the bucket.

        public FSTCompletionLookup(Directory tempDir,
                                   String tempFileNamePrefix,

                                   boolean exactMatchFirst)
        This constructor takes a pre-built automaton.
        Parameters:
        completion - An instance of FSTCompletion.
        exactMatchFirst - If true exact matches are promoted to the top of the suggestions list. Otherwise they appear in the order of discretized weight and alphabetical within the bucket.

      • lookup

        public List<Lookup.LookupResultlookup(CharSequence key,
                                                Set<BytesRef> contexts,
                                                boolean higherWeightsFirst,
                                                int num)
        Description copied from class: Lookup
        Look up a key and return possible completion for this key.
        Specified by:
        lookup in class Lookup
        Parameters:
        key - lookup key. Depending on the implementation this may be a prefix, misspelling, or even infix.
        contexts - contexts to filter the lookup by, or null if all contexts are allowed; if the suggestion contains any of the contexts, it's a match
        higherWeightsFirst - return only more popular results
        num - maximum number of results to return
        Returns:
        a list of possible completions, with their relative weight (e.g. popularity)
      • get

        public Object get(CharSequence key)
        Returns the bucket (weight) as a Long for the provided key if it exists, otherwise null if it does not.
