How to create my own Searcher for my customfield?

Hi,

I'm planning to write my own Searcher for my new customfield. Could anybody give me pointer:

1. which class I need to extend/implement?

2. what are the methods I need to implement/override?

3. Could you please explain what it is basically what it returns?

Thanks a million in advance!

That seems to be how to re-use one of the bundled searchers for your custom field type.

I went thru that link, but I want to create my own searcher. Any how Thanks!

Right.. Even for a new customfield type we usually extend the built-in type

Jamie,

Please let me know how to proceed. I hope you can answer this. At least give me few clues.

Thanks a billion in advance!

Not sure... I can't think of any plugins that have a custom field type and their own searcher, and aren't really complicated. What's your main problem again, performance?

Yes, I have performance problem. You can see it in https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/139381/how-to-avoid-two-time-search . I'm trying to implement your suggestion of using Lucene terms with customfield instead of only JQL.

Thanks
