Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-690) LazyField use of IndexInput not thread safe
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 19:22:37 GMT
    [ ] 
Grant Ingersoll commented on LUCENE-690:

Possibly reading wrong, but it seems like that invariant is not met by BufferedIndexInput,

If clone was called while the IndexInput was in the refill() operation before readInternal()
was called but after the buffer was allocated (i.e. line 64) and then clone finished it would
copy an empty buffer on line 103, right?  This would be bad, b/c I don't see that it could
recover from an empty buffer there when it thinks it has data.

So, I guess that would argue that it is not safe and that we should aggressively clone (b/c
we know it is in a good state) or that we should synchronize, right?
