Subject Fieldable breaks backward compatibility
Date Wed, 21 Jun 2006 17:54:03 GMT
LUCENE-545 that was recently committed breaks backward compatibility with
Document.getField(),  a non-expert level API that is *very* widely used.

Something simple like
  Field x = mydoc.getField("x");
no longer compiles (and neither do other methods with Field in the signature).

Is this intentional?
If not, uses of "Field" in unit tests should not have been changed to Fieldable.
