How to set the anlyzer?


(John Chang) #1

My lucene app (which I am converting to ElasticSearch) uses org.apache.lucene.analysis.snowball.SnowballAnalyzer as its analyzer. I like it for the stemming abilities. How can I get support for this (or another analyzer) in ElasticSearch? Thanks.

I am currently on ElasticSearch 0.7.1.

I looked in the org.elasticsearch.index.analysis directory and could not find any analyzer privider for the SnowballAnalyzer. So, using the BrazilianAnalyzerProvider as an example, I tried to create my own, but I keep getting this
error upon startup:
"1) Could not find a suitable constructor in com.kiha.server.services.index.KihaSnowballAnalyzer. Classes must have either one (and only one) constructor annotated with @Inject or a zero-argument constructor that is not private."

However, my class does have one constructor with an @Inject annotation. This is what I did:

I tried adding this to my elasticsearch.json:
index:
analysis:
analyzer:
standard:
type: com.mycompany.server.services.index.MyCompanySnowballAnalyzerProvider

I put com.mycompany.server.services.index.MyCompanySnowballAnalyzerProvider into a jar in the ./lib directory. The class has this constructor:

@Inject public MyCompanySnowballAnalyzerProvider(Index index, @IndexSettings Settings indexSettings, @Assisted String name, @Assisted Settings settings) {
    super(index, indexSettings, name);
    analyzer = new SnowballAnalyzer(Version.LUCENE_CURRENT, "English");
}

The class extends AbstractAnalyzerProvider:
public class MyCompanySnowballAnalyzerProvider extends AbstractAnalyzerProvider

Typo: in the above message, I meant to replace "kiha" with "mycompany" throughout, but missed some places. So "Could not find a suitable constructor in com.kiha.server.services.index.KihaSnowballAnalyzer." should be read as "Could not find a suitable constructor in com.mycompany.server.services.index.MyCompanySnowballAnalyzerProvider." in order to correspond to the rest of my post. Thanks.

This should work, strange. You get an exception for
com.kiha.server.services.index.KihaSnowballAnalyzer,
while I would expect you would get the exception for
com.kiha.server.services.index.KihaSnowballAnalyzerProvider
(note the Provider at the end). Which one are you getting again?

I am getting an exception from com.kiha.server.services.index.KihaSnowballAnalyzer. Although perhaps oddly named, this class IS an extension of AbstractAnalyzerProvider. It is declared as:

public class KihaSnowballAnalyzer extends AbstractAnalyzerProvider

I do not have a class named KihaSnowballAnalyzerProvider.

Can you write a quick test case and I will check why this happens?

I can't write a test case in terms of a JUnit to repro the issue, as I can't get the server to start up without error. The test is simply to start up the server and look for errors. If you wanted to repro it, all I can think of is to try to run my class and config. To repro:

  1. Use 0.7.1 (no particular reason I'm not on latest; just that it changes often, I can try with the latest if you advise)

  2. Add this to your elasticsearch.yml:
    index:
    analysis:
    analyzer:
    standard:
    type: com.kiha.server.services.index.KihaSnowballAnalyzer

  3. Compile this class and put it in your classpath. Note that it is modeled on the BrazilianAnalyzer I found. Note also that to get it to compile, you need lucene-snowball-3.0.0-sources.jar.

Thanks for your time.
