Returned value

Boolean noViews


If true, all query terms that could use NSF scanning do so. Terms with syntax that needs views will cause query processing to fail. To change the value, use setNoViews. Useful to experiment with the most optimal kind of processing within a query’s context. That is, sometimes it is optimal to use NSF scanning. The setting of false is the default.
