Hi Eric,

If you use &debugQuery=on parameter, you'll receive the "explain" structure, which tell
you about the score number calculation factors. An example:

<str name="oai:URMST:Transformation_Service/10000">
1.5076942 = (MATCH) fieldWeight(text:chant in 0), product of:
 1.4142135 = tf(termFreq(text:chant)=2)
 6.8230457 = idf(docFreq=1, numDocs=676)
 0.15625 = fieldNorm(field=text, doc=0)
</str>

Here tf(termFreq(text:chant)=2) tell you, that the queried term found two times in the document. You should apply a regex to extract this info from the explain string. Since this term is an analyzed term, it is possible that it not equals with the user input, but debug's 'parsedquery' parameter tell you the terms Solr search
behind the scene.

In Lucene, if the field stores the termVector's positions, there are API calls, that you can get the exact place of the term within the field (as character positions, or as the n-th token), but I don't know how to extract this info through Solr.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your response. But, yes I'm able to use facets in general, and yes I'm able to do highlighting on stored fields.



But finding how many times the query appears in the full text is my question. For example say you search on "Heisenberg" We'd like to see:



Hit 1: Your search for Heisenberg appears 10 times within the Finding Aid

Hit 2: Your search for Heisenberg appears 3 times within the Finding Aid

Hit 3: Your search for Heisenberg appears 88 times within the Finding Aid

etc



Could there be a solr parameter that calculates this? Otherwise a klugey, not very scalable method could be that once you retrieve a solr result xml, find the fedora pid, retrieve the EAD full text, run a standard function to count how many times the query appears in the text for each hit, and add parameters back into the xml with these counts.

Hi Eric,

You do not have to store the entire text content of the EAD guide in order
to enable facets. Here's an example:
http://kittredgecollection.org/results?q=*:* . There are about 15 facets
enabled on a collection of almost 1500 EAD documents (though quite small in filesize compared to traditional EAD finding aids), and there's no slowdown
whatsoever. I don't believe you need to store the guides to enable
highlighting either, though I have heard there is some dropoff in
performance with highlighting enabled. I've never done benchmarking on
highlighting enabled versus disabled, so I can't tell you how much of a
dropoff there is. In an index of only several hundred documents, I would
think that the dropoff with highlighting enabled would be fairly negligible.
