             Summary: Support of TotalHitCountCollector for api if numdocs passed as zero.
                 Key: LUCENE-7493
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Mahesh


I want to do drill down search using FacetCollection below is the code 

FacetsCollector facetCollector = new FacetsCollector();
TopDocs topDocs =, filterQuery, limit, 

I just want facet information so I pass limit as zero but I get error "numHits 
must be > 0; please use TotalHitCountCollector if you just need the total hit 

For FacetCollector there is no way to initialize 'TotalHitCountCollector'. 
Internally it always create either 'TopFieldCollector' or 
'TopScoreDocCollector' which does not allow limit as 0. 

So if limit should be zero then there should be a way that 
'TotalHitCountCollector' should be initialized. 

Better way would be to provide an api which takes query and collector as inputs 
just like ', totalHitCountCollector)'.
