Subject RE: Can't get Jackrabbit to work with Lucene 2.0.0
Date Tue, 06 Jun 2006 08:09:11 GMT
Thanks, just read about the issues on the jcr 352.  

Actually, I have tried the Deployment Model 2 (Shared J2EE Resource) to
separate the Jackrabbit from my other web application, and it is working
fine to co-exist 2 version of Lucene is the server.  The only draw back
is that I cant have a single build script to set all the configuration
required as some setting (like server.xml file) have to be mannually

Unfortunately yes. There is a backwards compatibility issue in Lucene
1.9 and 2.0 that causes the Jackrabbit to fail with the exception you
encountered. See the following bug reports for more details:


I think the best workaround for now is to deploy Jackrabbit as a
separate web application (using the jackrabbit-server war) or as a JCA
resource (using the jackrabbit-jca rar) and access it through JNDI in
your application. This allows Jackrabbit to have it's own class loader
with Lucene 1.4.3 while your application can keep using Lucene 2.0.0.
