 * Expert: Calculate query weights and build query scorers.
 * <p>
 * The purpose of {@link Weight} is to ensure searching does not
 * modify a {@link Query}, so that a {@link Query} instance can be reused. <br>
 * {@link Searcher} dependent state of the query should reside in the
 * {@link Weight}. <br>
 * {@link IndexReader} dependent state should reside in the {@link Scorer}.
 * <p>
 * A <code>Weight is used in the following way:
 * <ol>
 * <li>A Weight is constructed by a top-level query, given a
 * <code>Searcher ({@link Query#createWeight(Searcher)}).
 * <li>The {@link #sumOfSquaredWeights()} method is called on the
 * <code>Weight to compute the query normalization factor
 * {@link Similarity#queryNorm(float)} of the query clauses contained in the
 * query.
 * <li>The query normalization factor is passed to {@link #normalize(float)}. At
 * this point the weighting is complete.
 * <li>A Scorer is constructed by {@link #scorer(IndexReader,boolean,boolean)}.
 * </ol>
 * @since 2.9
public abstract class Weight implements Serializable {

   * An explanation of the score computation for the named document.
   * @param reader sub-reader containing the give doc
   * @param doc
   * @return an Explanation for the score
   * @throws IOException
  public abstract Explanation explain(IndexReader reader, int doc) throws IOException;

  /** The query that this concerns. */
  public abstract Query getQuery();

  /** The weight for this query. */
  public abstract float getValue();

  /** Assigns the query normalization factor to this. */
  public abstract void normalize(float norm);

   * Returns a {@link Scorer} which scores documents in/out-of order according
   * to <code>scoreDocsInOrder.
   * <p>
   * <b>NOTE: even if scoreDocsInOrder is false, it is
   * recommended to check whether the returned <code>Scorer indeed scores
   * documents out of order (i.e., call {@link #scoresDocsOutOfOrder()}), as
   * some <code>Scorer implementations will always return documents
   * in-order.<br>
   * <b>NOTE: null can be returned if no documents will be scored by this
   * query.
   * @param reader
   *          the {@link IndexReader} for which to return the {@link Scorer}.
   * @param scoreDocsInOrder
   *          specifies whether in-order scoring of documents is required. Note
   *          that if set to false (i.e., out-of-order scoring is required),
   *          this method can return whatever scoring mode it supports, as every
   *          in-order scorer is also an out-of-order one. However, an
   *          out-of-order scorer may not support {@link Scorer#nextDoc()}
   *          and/or {@link Scorer#advance(int)}, therefore it is recommended to
   *          request an in-order scorer if use of these methods is required.
   * @param topScorer
   *          if true, {@link Scorer#score(Collector)} will be called; if false,
   *          {@link Scorer#nextDoc()} and/or {@link Scorer#advance(int)} will
   *          be called.
   * @return a {@link Scorer} which scores documents in/out-of order.
   * @throws IOException
  public abstract Scorer scorer(IndexReader reader, boolean scoreDocsInOrder,
      boolean topScorer) throws IOException;
  /** The sum of squared weights of contained query clauses. */
  public abstract float sumOfSquaredWeights() throws IOException;

   * Returns true iff this implementation scores docs only out of order. This
   * method is used in conjunction with {@link Collector}'s
   * {@link Collector#acceptsDocsOutOfOrder() acceptsDocsOutOfOrder} and
   * {@link #scorer(org.apache.lucene.index.IndexReader, boolean, boolean)} to
   * create a matching {@link Scorer} instance for a given {@link Collector}, or
   * vice versa.
   * <p>
   * <b>NOTE: the default implementation returns false, i.e.
   * the <code>Scorer scores documents in-order.
  public boolean scoresDocsOutOfOrder() { return false; }
