class  Lucene.Net.Analysis.TokenStream
 A TokenStream enumerates the sequence of tokens, either from Fields of a Document or from query text. This is an abstract class. Concrete subclasses are:

A new TokenStream API has been introduced with Lucene 2.9. This API has moved from being Token based to IAttribute based. While Token still exists in 2.9 as a convenience class, the preferred way to store the information of a Token is to use Util.Attributes. TokenStream now extends AttributeSource, which provides access to all of the token IAttributes for the TokenStream. Note that only one instance per Util.Attribute is created and reused for every token. This approach reduces object creation and allows local caching of references to the Util.Attributes. See IncrementToken() for further details. The workflow of the new TokenStream API is as follows:

  • Instantiation of TokenStream/TokenFilters which add/get attributes to/from the AttributeSource.
  • The consumer calls TokenStream.Reset().
  • The consumer retrieves attributes from the stream and stores local references to all attributes it wants to access
  • The consumer calls IncrementToken() until it returns false and consumes the attributes after each call.
  • The consumer calls End() so that any end-of-stream operations can be performed.
  • The consumer calls Close() to release any resource when finished using the TokenStream

To make sure 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 IncrementToken(). You can find some example code for the new API in the analysis package level Javadoc. Sometimes it is desirable to capture a current state of a TokenStream , e. g. for buffering purposes (see CachingTokenFilter, TeeSinkTokenFilter). For this usecase AttributeSource.CaptureState and AttributeSource.RestoreState can be used. More...
