Can boost change dynamically?

Hi,

I have got a peculiar requirement in my project. I need to apply some
boost
to different fields of my index. But the problem is the boost that
needs to
be applied is dynamic. It changes for everyrow of data.I am storing that
in
the index itself while building it. Is there anyway by which i can add
the
boost to search query while searching. at present am retreiving the
whole
set of searched result and then manipulating with the score to get the
output. but by that way it gets too slow. can any one help me.

did you search the archives for this? Imho this topic came up a few days
(or weeks?) ago.

Short answer: <ou can set the boost on a per document basis at indexing
time, see the API docs for Ferret’s Document class.

Cheers,
Jens
