Class ScandinavianNormalizationFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, java.lang.AutoCloseable

    public final class ScandinavianNormalizationFilter
    extends TokenFilter
    This filter normalize use of the interchangeable Scandinavian characters æÆäÄöÖøØ and folded variants (aa, ao, ae, oe and oo) by transforming them to åÅæÆøØ.

    It's a semantically less destructive solution than ScandinavianFoldingFilter, most useful when a person with a Norwegian or Danish keyboard queries a Swedish index and vice versa. This filter does not the common Swedish folds of å and ä to a nor ö to o.

    blåbærsyltetøj == blåbärsyltetöj == blaabaarsyltetoej but not blabarsyltetoj räksmörgås == ræksmørgås == ræksmörgaos == raeksmoergaas but not raksmorgas

        public boolean incrementToken()
        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().
