New Page:

Lucene < 1.2 creates .lock files in the index directory itself.  With > 1.3 it creates
it in java.io.tmpdir (usually /tmp on *NIX systems).  

If you get the Exception: 

java.io.IOException: Lock obtain timed out
        at org.apache.lucene.store.Lock.obtain(Lock.java:97)
        at org.apache.lucene.store.Lock$With.run(Lock.java:147)
        at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexReader.open(IndexReader.java:110)
        at org.apache.lucene.search.IndexSearcher.<init>(IndexSearcher.java:80)

This is because Lucene was unable to open the index becuase it's currently locked.

Note that on Tomcat locks are kept in TOMCAT_HOME/temp and this can become confusing because
if you check /tmp there are no lock files.
