Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-555) Index Corruption
Date Mon, 24 Apr 2006 20:24:06 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-555?page=comments#action_12376095 ] 

Doug Cutting commented on LUCENE-555:
-------------------------------------

Dan,

Lucene has never had a recovery mechanism other than rebuilding the index.  This is usually
practical, since Lucene is not meant to be used as a primary repository for data, but rather
as an index, to help folks find things they already have.

So perhaps we should recategorize this as a feature request, rather than a bug, no?  Please
note that it might be difficult to add, since Lucene, in order to keep indexes relatively
small, keeps no journal of transactions.

Finally, Lucene is not a database.  It is a full-text indexing system.  The requirements are
different.
