@KeywordField on enum with Hibernate Search 6

@KeywordField is supposed to be used with String type only.
Does it work with enum annotated with EnumType.STRING?

P.S. I would test it if I could but my project is on Hibernate Search 5 and now I have 192 errors not solved while trying to migrate to Hibernate Search 6 and there is no way to compile it and run it.

P.P.S. Now I have 30 errors and BooleanJunction usage to convert to something else. Still don’t know what to do with this enum.

public enum ObjectStatus {

	projectable = Projectable.NO,
	searchable = Searchable.YES,
	sortable = Sortable.YES
private ObjectStatus objectStatus;

With index fields of type String. Your entity property can be of any type: as long as you use a value bridge to convert your entity property to a String, it will work.

The default value bridge for enums converts them to strings, so yes it does.

The annotation with EnumType.STRING does not matter.

Well, now that you wrote “index fields” it’s more clear to me. Java class property is property, not field so I should get it on my own but I did not.
Thank you very much!
The only really big thing left in my project is to convert BooleanJunctions to new logic and I can guess you can expect more questions from me LOL
