Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-811) Public API inconsistency
Date Thu, 22 Feb 2007 21:56:05 GMT


Michael McCandless updated LUCENE-811:

    Attachment: LUCENE-811.patch

Attaching proposed patch to change SegmentInfos (and all of its methods/fields) back to package
level protection.

I also found a few other cases (IndexFileNames, IndexFileNamesFilter, SegmentInfo) that I
had added public methods which should be kept at package protection.

> org.apache.lucene.index.SegmentInfos is public, and contains public methods (which is
good for expert-level index manipulation tools such as Luke). However, SegmentInfo class has
package visibility. This leads to a strange result that it's possible to read SegmentInfos,
but it's not possible to access its details ( from a user application.
> The solution is to make SegmentInfo class public.
